Health Education Curriculum Builder
Customize a yearly plan to help your students
develop and maintain health-enhancing behaviors.
Do you currently rely on a “day-to-day” lesson strategy in your health education classroom?
Would you like to ensure that your teaching is up to date and advancing student learning?
Are you looking for a health curriculum that’s tailored to the unique needs of your students?
If the answer to all of the above is “yes,” then this series of five individual courses is for you! That’s because each course in SHAPE America’s Health Curriculum Builder offers an individual block of learning that naturally builds teacher skills and understanding — one learning experience at a time
Course one begins with a deep dive into the National Health Education Standards. Subsequent courses then guide you through a logical progression, including:
- Using backward design in curriculum mapping, as well as unit and lesson plan development;
- Incorporating authentic, performance-based assessment;
- Developing successful implementation plans and strategies;
- And more!
The courses were developed by outstanding subject matter experts, including Holly Alperin, Sarah Benes, Mary Connolly, Melanie Lynch and Amy Lauren Smith. Their collective experience includes presenting at the SHAPE America National Convention as well as state and regional conferences, serving on numerous SHAPE America task forces and committees (including the committee that revised the National Health Education Teacher Education Standards), authoring numerous publications, teaching at the higher education and K-12 level, and being a SHAPE America National Teacher of the Year.
