How Bad is That?
Brey, Rebecca A.; Clark, Susan E.
Health Educator, v47 n1 p17-19 Spr 2015
This teaching technique asks students to evaluate the "badness" of 5-7 health-related behavioral statements of a specific health topic. Following the presentation of each statement, each students selects one of five choices: "Really Bad", "No Big Deal", "It Depends", "Go for It", or "Pass". Processing/ discussion questions led by the teacher help students recognize and identify reasons that may shift the perception of the acceptability of the health-related behavior. Reasons may include 1) who is involved and 2) to what degree each student believes the behavior has an impact on self or others. To assess the technique, students will compose a one-page reflection paper addressing the influences of personal perceptions on health-related decision-making.
