HealthSmart is the nation’s leading skills-based health education curriculum that can fully support implementation of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) approach for schools. Health Education is one of the essential components of the WSCC framework.
The effectiveness of school health education is enhanced when it is implemented as part of a larger school health program and when health education outcomes are reinforced by the other nine components in the WSCC model. HealthSmart lessons offer opportunities to involve other components of the WSCC, particularly those activities that engage students as health advocates and allow them to share their learning with the larger school community.
The clarity and detail of every HealthSmart lesson allows it to be easily implemented across other components of the WSCC model including health services; counseling, psychological, and social services and nutrition environment and services.
