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 module provides complementary details on the substance of the THTM program. Specifically, it contains the THTM program framework and overall conceptual orientation, the goals and philosophy of the program, an overview of module content and teaching strategies, and introductory activities for students. These activities include suggested discussions on the topics of health, the process of making health decisions and performing health tasks, and the general organization of the THTM modules. It is suggested that this module be used in conjunction with the THTM training guide. (JD)
