Reading in Health Education

What do complex texts look like across the grades in my discipline?
1. For the elementary grades it is important to connect health and reading together for examples of how this can be done you can view examples at
www.scassheap.org/healthandreading.html . In addition we have included a list of books compiled by Professor Christy Jefson from UW-Whitewater and the appropriate health topic connection.
2. For middle and high school students you can connect critical health issues utilizing the monthly magazine Current Health: Youth or Current Health: Teens to your units of instruction. An example of articles in this publication can be viewed at http://www.weeklyreader.com/archive/28.
3.NEW!! There is an item that connects health skill reading sources with the new Bloom's taxonomy, comprehension self-assessment, a focusing question related to each level of Bloom's taxonomy, and a strategy that could be given to proficient readers. An outline of this chart appears in the documents below.
How do I support students as they learn to navigate them? (vignettes, exemplars, etc.)
We will provide examples in this section over the course of time. One has been included below related to the area of suicide prevention. The lesson focuses in on picking out warning signs  in a scenario and applying it to taking action through communication.
