Teenage Health Teaching Modules. A Guide for Trainers.
Education Development Center, Inc., Newton, MA.
The Teenage Health Teaching Modules (THTM) program is a health education curriculum for adolescents. Each THTM module frames an adolescent health task emphasizing development of self-assessment, communication, decision making, health advocacy, and self-management. This guide, for trainers conducting workshops to train teachers and other health professionals who will be implementing THTM programs, is organized into four parts. The first part answers basic questions about the THTM program: what it is, what it includes, who supports it, how it can be purchased. The second part suggests how to prepare for the workshop, who to invite, and where to meet. The substance of the training session is then provided and activities of a two-day agenda are spelled out in detail. Suggestions are included for expanding the workshop beyond two days or abbreviating the agenda, and for following up on the training session. Opportunities for informing/involving parents and community members are also suggested. It is suggested that this training guide be used in conjunction with "Health is Basic: An Introduction to the THTM Program for Teachers and Students." (JD)
