What do you learn in 7th Grade Health?
Glencoe Teen Health by McGraw Hill Education
Alaska Safe Children’s Act
This course is designed to promote physical, mental, social and emotional health while students gain the necessary knowledge, skills, and positive attitudes for a lifetime of personal wellness. The Glencoe Teen Health education program motivates students to improve and maintain their health, prevent disease, and reduce risky behaviors. Positive Action is a systematic educational program that promotes an intrinsic interest in learning and encourages cooperation among students. It works by teaching and reinforcing the intuitive philosophy that you feel good about yourself when you do positive actions.
When children are healthy, they can learn; when they are educated, they can stay healthy. “no knowledge is more crucial that knowledge about health. Without it, no other goal can be successfully achieved.”
