Powerful Health Education Instructional Practices

Teachers who follow SREB’s Powerful Health Education Instructional Practices draw on national, regional and local public health data and other sources to identify priority health issues for the local community. Then, the authentic learning experiences teachers craft engage students in identifying the protective factors, risk behaviors and health-enhancing behaviors that influence these health issues and complete projects that require them to problem-solve and implement changes to health behaviors and practices at school and at home.
