Health Education Teaching Ideas: Secondary. Revised Edition.
Loya, Richard, Ed.; Bensley, Loren B., Jr., Ed.
Part I of this teaching guide contains teaching strategies which originally appeared in the "Journal of Health Education" (JHE) and were included in the first edition of this guide, published in 1983. Part II includes teaching strategies published in JHE since 1983. The guide is designed to be a reference for those seeking workable ideas in teaching and delivering health education programs to junior and senior high school students. However, the material can be adapted for middle school through college level. Within each part, articles focus on two major areas: process and content. Examples of process-focused articles are: "Health Games"; "Health Science Fairs"; "The Writing Process in Health Class"; "Teaching about Authoring Systems: Instructional Design Tools for Health Education"; and "Using College Students as Senior Peer Teachers in Youth-to-Youth Health Education." Examples of content-focused articles are: "Once upon a Synapse: A Drug Education Simulation in Three Acts"; "Teaching Abstinence to Today's Teens"; "Teaching the Four Cs of First Aid"; "Student-to-Student Teaching about Tobacco Smoking"; and "Coping with Violence."
