Implementing the New SHAPE America National Health Education Standards

This interactive workshop will leave you equipped with a comprehensive understanding of the new SHAPE America National Health Education Standards. You’ll have an opportunity to examine the new themes in the revised standards through an exploration of the rationale, performance indicators, and other resources.

  • Explore how health skills and performance indicators can be used to guide curriculum and instruction; and
  • Outline a skills-based activity aligned with the revised National Health Education Standards.
