Skills - Based Health Education provides pre-service and practicing teachers with the pedagogical foundation and tools to develop a comprehensive PreK-12 health education program using the National Health Education Standards. Rather than solely focusing on teaching content, an approach which can prove ineffective in developing healthy behaviors, readers learn to teach the content and skills their students need to be healthy and prepared for the 21st century. The book addresses each one of the national standards with specific directions regarding how to apply the standard, and performance indicators to plan and implement performance tasks that target instruction to a student need. Readers are shown how to establish student need, select content and skill performance indicators to meet the need, and plan and implement assessment and instruction.PowerPoint Presentations and a TestBank are available as free Instructor Downloads.Companion website includes lessons, units, and other support materials to enhance teaching and learning.
