Topic outline

  • Welcome!

    The modules in this course collectively create a comprehensive course to support educators teaching health education. The goal of health education is for students to gain knowledge and become proficient in skills that will help them adopt and maintain healthy lives.  

    These modules will equip educators to develop skills around implementing high impact teaching strategies and effective health education practices. Each of the course modules below focuses on one important aspect of health education. The modules are set up to be viewed sequentially; however, they are self-contained, meaning there is flexibility to review the modules individually at your leisure. Information on receiving a certificate for hours completion of the modules can be found in the  "Course Contact Hours Certificate of Completion" module.  Modules have been created by Colorado health educators with support from the Colorado Education Initiative, and funding from the Colorado Health Foundation. If you have questions or feedback regarding the course or modules feel free to contact

  • This module will explore strategies to integrate health education across
    multiple content areas. In the module we will identify approaches that

     include integration of health content (knowledge)content and skills across content areas (knowledge and skills), health skills across content areas, and integration of skills through a schoolwide Whole School, Whole Community Whole Child approach. You will find a PP that provides examples of each of these approaches as well as several grade level examples of standards content and skills alignment.
