Health Education II (9-12)
It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. – Mahatma Gandhi
Health education provides opportunities for students to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for practicing lifelong, health-enhancing behaviors. The Health II curriculum focuses on what students can do for themselves to meet the objectives of the six state core standards and illustrates the impact their attitudes and behaviors have on the world around them. The curricu-lum builds on the foundation established in Health I with an advanced, age-appropriate focus. Students will learn that they are responsible for their personal well-being and that building a solid foundation of health literacy and decision-making skills can contribute to positive health choices throughout life. In addition, they will explore the impact their personal health has on society as a whole.
Consumer health (e.g., evaluating the reliability of health information, identifying and assessing health resources and health-care providers, understanding media messages in advertising) is important and should be taught through all standards of the core.
