About the Health Education Program at Dover Middle School

 

 

Course Description:

            The 7th and 8th Grade Family Life Health program is designed to allow students the ability to develop the knowledge and skills needed to be healthy and to achieve academic success. Effective Health Education programs promote each student’s optimum physical, mental, emotional, and social development, while being grounded in scientifically based research and public health knowledge. As such, Dover Middle School’s Family Life Health program utilizes multiple learning theories and instruction to support health-enhancing behaviors. The use of technology will be used throughout the year to aid in the goal of healthy living, and by doing so increase each student’s desire to learn. Students will have the opportunity to set goals and strive to be the best that they can possibly be. This program is student centered, and all students will be challenged to engage in classroom discussion, research, and a variety of skill practices on a daily basis. Current health issues will be discussed in detail, which will allow students the opportunity to take responsibility for their own health and overall well being. At the conclusion of this program students will be prepared to address wellness issues, now, and throughout their lifetime.
