    The second edition of Health Promotion and Education: Content and Curriculum presents students with best practices for school and public health education. Filled with practical applications and examples, the book is written with future professional experiences in mind and provides teaching strategies and learning activities for diverse learning populations.

    The book begins by teaching students about the role and benefit of schools and communities in promoting health education. In later chapters, models of prevention (with a focus on health risk behaviors), target population characteristics, administrative support, maximizing participation, factors that influence learning, and numerous other critical subjects are covered. Throughout, readers are challenged to cultivate practical skills, including learning how to write learning objectives, implement teaching strategies, use graphic organizers, plan lessons, create rubrics, and assess and evaluate progress.

    The second edition features increased focus on assessment and evaluation. Students learn how to align assessment and evaluation strategies with target population indicators and learning objectives to better demonstrate program and curricula efficacy.

    Health Promotion and Education is ideal for courses in school and/or public health education curriculum and methodology, as well as those that teach best practices in health education.
