Information and accompanying exercises are provided in this learning module to reinforce students' basic reading and writing skills and, at the same time, increase their awareness of and motivation toward sound personal health practices. Written at an elementary level, the module considers eleven personal health topics: prevention of illness; nutrition; the four basic food groups; the development of proper eating, sleeping, and exercising habits; first aid; poisons; the harmful effects of smoking and drinking; drug abuse; finding and visiting a doctor; birth control and pregnancy; and the calculation of life expectancy. For each topic, the module provides texts and multiple-choice, true/false, or fill-in-the-blank exercises to test students' reading comprehension, strengthen spelling skills, and reinforce learning. In addition, exercises are provided which utilize the subject material to explain the meaning and use of verbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and command sentences. A glossary and exercise answer key are provided. (JP)
