The Second Edition of Skills-Based Health Education provides pre-service and practicing teachers with the pedagogical foundation and tools to develop a comprehensive PreK-12 health education program using the National Health Education Standards. It takes each standard by grade span, provides scenarios based on research to explain the skill, and then provides a step-by-step approach to planning assessment and instruction. Early chapters connect skills-based health education to coordinated school health and the national initiatives of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Healthy People 2020, The Whole Child, and 21st Century Skills. The remaining chapters provide guidance to plan implement, and assess performance tasks. Readers are shown how to establish student needs, select content and skill performance indicators to meet those needs, and plan and implement assessment and instructions.

Essentials of Teaching Adapted Physical Education: Diversity, Culture, and Inclusion offers a wealth of knowledge for teaching today's diverse student population, including those with disabilities. Readers will learn how to teach a variety of students, organize learning within various curricular models, assess and evaluate students, and manage behavior. Readers will also learn more about the conditions and disabilities they may encounter when teaching, how to understand students' various abilities, and how to adapt and modify instructional methods to include all students. The book emphasizes the importance of being culturally responsive and acquiring the necessary knowledge to infuse appropriate, socially just practices into educational settings. Future teachers will learn how to apply culturally responsive instructional methods and behavior management strategies and will understand broader social and economic contexts for their students' behavior. At the same time, this book provides more than a how-to approach to teaching adapted physical education. Its content and features promote reflective learning, encouraging readers to anticipate the types of teaching situations and challenges that may arise and think through how they will respond. Scenarios and vignettes throughout provide context for the material and promote critical thinking and problem solving.

Each of the 13 million high school students in public high schools are required to take one semester of health education. For health instruction to be successful, the instructional program should be grounded in good science, include a behavioral component, and be packaged in a way that can be easily implemented. Essentials of Health and Wellness provides the teacher with everything needed to engage the learner and to create a successful health course. It is designed to be student friendly and is centered on the important, but often overlooked, notion of building personal wellness. All health concepts are brought back to the student, who is encouraged to develop positive wellness behaviors through the creation of a personal wellness plan. Based on the framework of the National Standards for School Health Education, this product is the total package for high school health education. With a small but rich ancillary offering, including a separate Sexuality Supplement (ISBN 1-4018-1525-1)that goes into greater detail about sensitive issues that may not be desirable to all school districts and a free Online Companion with additional lesson plans, teaching activities, and student worksheets, this text provides teachers with a well-rounded, effective system for health education instruction.
