San Diego State University Family and Social Health Chapter Discussion
Our first discussion focused on WHAT needs to be taught for health education by using the California Department of Education Standards. This discussion focuses on HOW to do it. Much of what we do is learn from others and from resources!! Your book, classes like this, the internet, there are so many resources to give you ideas. This assignment is to help you use resources to integrate the concepts from chapter 5, 6 and 7 while we continue to work with the CA Standards.
- Find an activity you would use to infuse the CA Education Content Area of Mental, Emotional and Social health into a curriculum. You can pick a topic from Chapter 6: Family Relationships, Friendships, Sexual relationships/Abstinence, Marriage, or Parenthood or get inspired on your own. Pick a topic that is age related to your students, or the students you wish to teach. Use this link to help you find ideas. Mental and Social Health Lesson Link (Links to an external site.) Include the Standard in your write up. Adjust the ideas to make them your own. DO Not just cut and paste or you will not get credit. A one paragraph short description is fine!
2. Next, do the same showing how to integrate an activity or the concepts of Growth and Development. Be specific, don’t just say, “I can integrate growth and development into biology.” Again, use the chapter for ideas. This time, however, find your own resource to share. You must share the link where you found inspiration. Like the above, have the grade level (content is growth and development) and list what standard it meets for your grade level.
This should look a lot like Discussion 1! Now you are just showing where you can find ideas for areas. BOTH parts should have the below:
Standard: (no need to do performance indicators today)
Content Area: (first will be mental, emotional and social health and the second will be growth and development)
Source: (I gave this to you in part 1, but part 2 needs this from you! Provide the link or page in the book.)
