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.
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 and (2) identify and apply teaching strategies/methods that serve to increase teaching/learning effectiveness in health education.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) presentation and self-evaluation of 5 minute and 15 minute presentations; (2) health lesson Plans; and (3) presentation of role play. Further information is available in the unit outline.
