Middle and High School Health and Physical Education Educators:

Why Skills-Based Health Education?

From "The application of skills based health education, in particular life skills, to areas such as HIV/AIDS prevention, reproductive health, early pregnancy, violence, tobacco and substance abuse is becoming increasingly widespread.  In areas such as these, individual behavior, social and peer pressure, cultural norms and abusive relationships may all contribute to the health and lifestyle problems of children and adolescents.  There is now increasing evidence that in tackling these issues and health problems, a skills based approach to health education works, and is more effective than teaching knowledge alone."

Where to start?

Join the PE/Health DPI Consultant, Sally Jones, at CESA #4 for a day focused
completely on understanding and implementing a skills-based health curriculum.

Participants will:

   - Achieve basic understanding of skills-based health education
          - Standards are the skills
          - Activities are purposeful/meaningful and assess the skill
    - Learn the basic steps to developing units and lessons

Workshop Cost:  $150    Includes:  morning refreshments, lunch and
a copy of Lesson Planning for Skills-Based  Health Education:  Meeting
Secondary-Level National Standards
by Sarah Benes and Holly Alperin.

Help us plan the correct number of books to order by registering early!

Later registrants will receive their copies via the CESA van after the event
