Linking National Subject Area Standards with Priority Health-Risk Issues in PK-12 Curricula and Teacher Education Programs.
This report provides suggestions for effectively linking priority health information in 12 core subject areas without increasing teacher workload. It also illustrates how current academic standards in these core areas can be met by linking the health-learning opportunities with subject area standards. Four sections include: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Using National Standards to Improve Teaching and Learning about Health" (learning about health as a discrete subject and learning about health through language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics and government, economics, fine arts, history and social studies, geography, physical education, and technology); (3) "Using National Standards to Guide Teacher Education About HIV Prevention" (HIV education in health education and in other curricular areas); and (4) "Helping Teacher Education Programs Support Teaching and Learning about Health" (recommendations, overcoming barriers to collaboration, and sharing responsibility). Four appendixes present: interprofessional collaboration at the University of Hawaii at Manoa; health promotion in teacher education at Kent State University, Ohio; integration for healthier schools: a partnership approach; and integrating comprehensive school health programs into preservice in higher education: results of a multidisciplinary initiative in Wisconsin. (Contains 51 references.) (SM)
