Each of the 13 million high school students in public high schools are required to take one semester of health education. For health instruction to be successful, the instructional program should be grounded in good science, include a behavioral component, and be packaged in a way that can be easily implemented. Essentials of Health and Wellness provides the teacher with everything needed to engage the learner and to create a successful health course. It is designed to be student friendly and is centered on the important, but often overlooked, notion of building personal wellness. All health concepts are brought back to the student, who is encouraged to develop positive wellness behaviors through the creation of a personal wellness plan. Based on the framework of the National Standards for School Health Education, this product is the total package for high school health education. With a small but rich ancillary offering, including a separate Sexuality Supplement (ISBN 1-4018-1525-1)that goes into greater detail about sensitive issues that may not be desirable to all school districts and a free Online Companion with additional lesson plans, teaching activities, and student worksheets, this text provides teachers with a well-rounded, effective system for health education instruction.
