Practice, Practice, Practice: The Road to Students Mastering Health Skills
Practice makes perfect. When it comes to skills-based health education, practice is the hinge that connects instruction and mastery. Providing real-life, engaging practice opportunities in the health education classroom is vital to ensuring that students develop their health literacy. In this training, participants will first have the opportunity to evaluate their current classroom structures and curriculum for opportunities that help students practice health skills as well as prepare them to apply the health skills to their daily lives. After evaluating their own classroom practices, participants will learn strategies for incorporating practice opportunities in their classroom and will create plans for their use in the Health Education classroom.
