The Tools You Need for Teaching Health
Health educators who work with adolescents, seniors, students, and other population groups must explain to their audiences the prevention of risk behaviors, the interrelationship between health knowledge, attitudes and behaviors and health status, and the workings of the human body, all in language that is easily understandable and jargon free.
Tools for Teaching Health presents classroom-tested, ready to use activities and lessons developed and written by highly acclaimed health educators. This much-needed resource provides any health educator who works with various populations with the strategies that will enhance the health education experience and make learning fun. Designed to be practical, all the book's proven activities are reproducible, hands-on, student-centered, and interactive.
Tools for Teaching Health concentrates on the key areas that are critical to health education:
Tools for Teaching Health reflects the National Health Education Standards that support the need to promote health and disease prevention behavior. The chapters show how to promote healthy behaviors, such as stress management, communication skills, assertiveness, refusal skills, goal setting, resource management, media analysis, and advocate for personal, family, and community health.
All the activities highlighted in Tools for Teaching Health are designed to promote cooperative learning, social interaction, creativity, and a mutual atmosphere of trust, respect, and the joy of learning health.
