Health Education Expectations
The U-46 Board-adopted health curriculum provides non-text, activity-based learning opportunities. Students are being provided the most current health information through continually updated materials. The varieties of innovative strategies allow students an opportunity to learn through participating in cooperative as well as individual activities. All Health Education students will use research skills to develop a Health/Wellness project for this one-semester course. Most importantly, decision-making and life management skills gained from this curriculum help students continue to achieve an enhanced quality of life long past their Health Education course. For reference purposes, a class set of texts from Glencoe Health are available in each classroom to provide additional depth of information. To gain more specific information about the expectations for your child’s Health Education class please visit his or her teacher’s website or contact the teacher by phone.
