Glencoe Health © 2014
Glencoe Health is a comprehensive, secondary health education program that can be delivered online as well as in a traditional print format. The flexible format allows you to engage high school students in an exploration of health and wellness, wherever you are on the digital path! Content is correlated to National Health Education Standards and focuses on building health skills that show students how to create their own paths. Real-world application of health skills provides students with the understanding they need to create an individualized plan for a healthy life.
The optional Glencoe Human Sexuality module (through the digital and/or print programs) explores issues dealing with self-esteem and healthy decision-making. Some topics include understanding emotions, communications skills, understanding sexuality, dealing with peer pressure, developing refusal skills, and recognizing how and where to get help.
