Health Education Curriculum Planning & DevelopmenteBook - 2015
Even though the majority of school districts function independently in this country, the process by which curriculum is developed is highly established. This is also true for health education. Curriculum development is a set of coordinated activities that follows a logical process. It begins by formulating clear goals and continues in an "if-then" manner until completion. Thus, curriculum development is a deductive process, and the actions become more detailed, resulting in a final product. Curriculum planning should begin with a series of questions that reveal the value preferences; the answers serve as the basis of planning efforts and program evaluation. The value preferences, as revealed by the answers, are referred to as the educational philosophies. Curriculum developers who bypass this stage and do not develop value preference clarification are already following a course of producing an incomplete educational product.
