College News and Departmental Notes: Household Arts Education
by Departmental notes - 1921
A committee of graduate students in the department of household arts education, in cooperation with students from the nursing and health, nutrition, and physical education departments, is working on a plan for health education in the elementary school. The group from the household arts education department is especially concerned with health facts about food and clothing. The work is being conducted in close co÷peration with the teachers of Public School No. 43. It is hoped that a comprehensive and progressive plan for the teaching of health habits may be developed. The study is part of a health campaign which is being carried on at Public School No. 43 in which a number of agencies are cooperating to secure high standards of health in the student body of that school. The agencies concerned are, in addition to the departments of Teachers College named above, the Bureau of Health of New York City and the Red Cross. Each agency is responsible for a definite part of the program so that there shall be no duplication of effort.
