Content This unit provides an in-depth study of values and attitudes that promote health. It uses the medium of health to explore the techniques and presentation skills necessary for the teaching of health.
Outcomes Students are able to (1) determine and justify a health education rationale, and plan for and critically evaluate teaching pedagogy and content which is underpinned by the Western Australian Curriculum Framework; and (2) identify and apply teaching strategies/methods that serve to increase teaching/learning effectiveness in health education.
Assessment Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) presentation and self-evaluation of microteaching sequential development of health education lesson plans; and (2) creation and presentation of a role-play activity. Further information is available in the unit outline.
