HLMF01: Health Ed 6 A (2022)

The Health Education 6A (nine-week) course is designed to help sixth grade students obtain, process and use basic information and skills related to the health issues of adolescents and the pre-cursors of adult health problems that have risk factors that may emerge during adolescence. Developmentally appropriate concepts of personal and community health, safety and injury prevention, and nutrition and physical activity are taught in this course. Students apply health education concepts and health literacy skills, e.g., practicing interpersonal communications; analyzing positive and negative, internal and external influences on health decisions; and demonstrating health self-care practices in managing personal daily activities related to health promotion and disease, injury prevention, nutrition and physical activity. Students conceptualize health knowledge related to issues of adolescents and apply health literacy skills in making appropriate, healthful decisions.

Code should be used in Q1 and Q3 courses.
