Why Health Education

Health Education is an integral part of the total education of every child in kindergarten through grade 12. Quality health education programs are needed to increase student knowledge on various age-appropriate contemporary health issues and to apply appropriate skills to take action in promoting or restoring health. Quality health must contain the following components:
  • Critical Health Information
  • Personal Values that Support Healthy Behaviors
  • Norms on Health Issues
  • Skill Development
  • Health Behavior Practice
The Power of Teaching is a compliation of what research and practice say are effective practices in health curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
