ETR Associates today announced the launch of the 2nd edition of HealthSmart Middle School, a component of its nationally recognized comprehensive K-12 health education program. The High School 2nd edition arrives in October of 2012.
The HealthSmart Middle School 2nd edition aligns with both the National Health Education Standards and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Health Education Curriculum Analysis Tool (HECAT). HealthSmart focuses on the 6 areas of health-risk behaviors among youth and young adults identified by the CDC’s national Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS). These include: unintentional injuries and violence; sexual behaviors contributing to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases; tobacco use; alcohol and other drug use; unhealthy dietary behaviors; and inadequate physical activity. HealthSmart also includes two additional areas of risk identified in CDC's HECAT: mental and emotional health, and personal health and wellness.
The HealthSmart Middle School 2nd edition consists of 6 carefully planned Teacher Guides, each with thorough teaching procedures, and corresponding Student Workbooks. The 2nd edition includes updated content, a new instructional design template, an emphasis on assessment, PowerPoint slides and blackline masters, student journals with class discussion notes, a health terms glossary and a dedicated HealthSmart website www.etr.org/healthsmart.
