In partnership with Ohio Action for Healthy Kids, Zone 1, the Ohio Department of Education, Ohio Department of Health & Buckeye Healthy Schools Alliance are sponsoring a two-day health education workshop for middle and high school health teachers. This workshop is set up as two interactive training sessions designed to teach educators to develop curriculum, teaching units and lesson plans that focus on building the critical thinking and decision making skills students need to establish good health behaviors. Our facilitators are Dr. Susan Telljohann & Dr. Joseph Dake of the University of Toledo. Participants will meet on March 22, 2013 to learn how to incorporate characteristics of effective health programs into their health curriculum/units/lesson plans then go back to their classrooms to implement and test these strategies. Participants will then come back together on April 19, 2013 to discuss lessons learned and work through challenges in their classrooms.
At the end of the training, participants will be able to:
