The Health Skills models are aligned with the National Health Education Standards and Indicators. Models for grade spans PreK-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 focusing on the skills of analyzing influences, accessing valid and reliable resources,  interpersonal communication, decision-making, goal-setting, self-management, and advocacy for self and others. Through consistent practice, students will be better able to implement these skills in a variety of settings beyond the classroom. These skill models can be used in health education and across the curriculum in various content areas.
