Health Education Syllabus

Welcome to Health class.  In this course, we will be focusing our studies on Health Education.  Health Education is an intentional effort to help students understand, care about, and act upon core health values.  The North Carolina Essential Standards Health Education- is a Grades 6 – 8 curriculum.  


The 5 Healthy Living Strands that are focused on are:                                 Email address:

  • Mental and Emotional Health                                                        
  • Personal and Consumer Health                                            **donations to the class – box of tissues,
  • Interpersonal Communications and Relationships                                    notebook paper
  • Nutrition and Physical Activity pencil, notebook paper, folder or binder slot
  • Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs 


The strands are the same in each grade, but the lessons that are taught are an extension of the previous grade.  Greater attention to the content and skills of Health Education can make a difference in whether young people choose healthier behaviors and lead happier and more productive lives.  Health literate students are more likely to become adults who achieve high-level wellness and who are ready for the challenges of the global economy.

Healthy Disciplines:  To successfully achieve the objectives in Health, students must practice health discipline.  These are skills that will carry students into any situation for life.  Students will be engaged in class discussions, small group work as well as an independent approach in the exploration of the health standards.
