"I Feel Good!" A Weekly Wellness Radio Broadcast for Elementary School Children
Morton, Jennifer L.
Journal of School Nursing, v24 n2 p83-87 2008
An ideal time to start health promotion education is during the elementary years. However, over the last several years, many elementary schools have eliminated formal health education from their curriculum, subsequently integrating health education components into existing classroom content. The "I Feel Good!" radio broadcast is an innovative health education program that meets the health education standards of the Maine Learning Results. Ten classrooms of students participated in this year-long academic program. Scores from a pretest administered prior to the beginning of the program were compared with posttest health knowledge scores at the end of the program. Data from all classrooms revealed an increase in posttest knowledge. Initiatives such as "I Feel Good!" serve as models for creative health education program development by school nurses.
