What makes an effective Health curriculum?
Here’s the latest from the CDC that breaks it down really well…
“Today’s state-of-the-art health education curricula reflect the growing body of research that emphasizes
- Teaching functional health information (essential knowledge)
- Shaping personal values and beliefs that support healthy behaviors
- Shaping group norms that value a healthy lifestyle
- Developing the essential health skills necessary to adopt, practice, and maintain health-enhancing behaviors.
Less effective curricula often overemphasize teaching scientific facts and increasing student knowledge.”
Health curriculum should be current, relevant, adaptable… and shared. On the pages below, you’ll find some of my favorite resources broken down by content. On my blog, I’ll be posting videos, articles, and other resources that I’ve had success with in my lessons.
As always, let me know if you’re looking for anything in particular. I’ve got a crazy amount of resources for all of the content areas, and like I said… I love to share!
