Planning a Healthy Future. Teenage Health Teaching Modules.
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 module takes the position that students need to understand the value of and techniques for setting specific health-related goals, and gives them the opportunity to think about long-term health objectives. Class activities outline ways to lay the groundwork for planning sound health practices for the future. Included in this process is considering what they will be like in middle and later years. Students are encouraged to understand health-related problems in the later stages of life, and to speculate about their futures around the issues of families, jobs, life style, friends, recreation, and possible problems. The goal of the discussion sessions is to help students think about the future and plan ways for incorporating good health practices into their own lives. (JD)
