"The future belongs to the healthy youth."
This is my 1st year teaching for Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools. I believe Health is one of the most important courses your child will take during their high school years since the knowledge and skills they learn will benefit them throughout their lives.
Health is a required semester course. It covers various health topics that are or will be relevant in life. Topics include: Mental Health/Wellness, Alcohol/Drugs/Tobacco, Diseases, Human Sexuality and Healthful Living (Nutrition & Fitness). Skill development areas include: Analyzing Influences, Accessing Information, Communication, Responsible Decision Making, Goal Setting, Self-Management and Advocacy. Topics will be covered via lecture, notes, study guides, discussions, individual & group activities, projects, presentations and outside speakers.
The easiest way to view individual lessons from our Health textbook is to click 'Downloaded Files' on this page and then go to the 'Health Textbook' folder. There you will be able to view or print out any of the lessons you need for any of the material covered in Health class.
