I chose two books on health education, the first one I chose was called Total Health- Thinking about Life’s Changes by Susan Boe, which is a textbook for middle school. The other textbook I chose is also by the same author called Total Health- Choices for a Winning Lifestyle for high school students. At first glance both look like they have a lot of information in them and look well organized.
The manual provides teachers with information on what content should be taught. The middle school book contains four broad units on physical health, mental health, social health and spiritual health with descriptive daily lesson plans. The high school book has many more units ranging from first aid to sleep cycles to substance abuse. Although there are more lesson units the lesson plans are not as in-depth. The high school book contains goals for each unit, resources, lesson plans, back up lesson plans, information on how to handle sex education and many other helpful suggestions and information. The middle school book gives teachers information on how to teach lessons and which lessons …show more content…
They are different designed for different age groups so the content is obviously different, but it still has a solid biblical/Christian worldview. There is evidence that the author genuinely cares about the content and the spiritual lives of students wanting them to grow healthy lives in all dimensions. The book would be best used in a Christian School. If a public school teacher were to use this book they would have to use caution. Both manuals would be effective in helping a teacher deliver instruction. They serve a guide and offer helpful hints along with suggestions, sample lessons, many definitions. Over all, I would consider using these books in the future for a class, but I think that I would want to check out other books and do some more research

Money, riches, power, and fame are not true happiness. In life I learned that true happiness cannot be bought with those things. True happiness is what truly makes you happy. I have learned these things from celebrities, also from viewing people that I know. By viewing the lives of these people you can tell that they are not happy with their lives. Because they are not happy they feel a great load of depression in their lives, which can sometimes lead to suicide.
“Canyons” by gary paulsen is a well written book that i think that a group who picked it would like it but giving it to the whole school i think some students wouldn't like it.
Although many people are different from each other, we are still the same race and prove that we can work together to help make a more desirable future. In “Making the Future Better, Together” by Eboo Patel, talks about different races coming together to make a future, be part of the future on how we can work together even though we are different. We might be diverse from each other, but we are still humans who want to be one to make a name of a new nation. In “Making the Future Better, Together” by Eboo Patel, his quote to people is “When you serve, you are part of the future”(Patel 7).
The act of crossing a metaphorical threshold is one that is oftentimes difficult and daunting. Although it may require courage, the reward of gaining knowledge is worth the process of crossing whatever threshold life chooses to place in front of you. In Sue Monk Kidd’s novel the protagonist, Sarah Grimké, knows all about crossing thresholds. She lives by her own personal slogan to “err… on the side of audacity.” I have come to learn so much about myself and the world around me by doing just that.
“What doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger” (p. 28). In the scientific novel Survival of the Sickest by Sharon Moalem with Jonathan Prince, self-acclaimed “Medical Maverick” Dr. Moalem makes in-depth analyses of current human diseases that, ironically, may have led to the survival of mankind in the past. He presents a novel concept that greatly contradicts what have been universally accepted beliefs surrounding biology and the process of human evolution for a long time. With the use of myriad scientific studies and research, he formulates surprising theories about a positive correlation between disease and humanity. Moalem narrates the scientific world’s findings that strongly exemplify his assertions, however arbitrary they may seem at first. Three of the diseases that he examines, hemochromatosis, Type 1 diabetes, and favism, could have been particularly useful for resistance against other illnesses and survival in a historically harsh environment.
The book I used as a resource (Understanding Health and Social Care, Second edition, Julia Johnson, Sage publications, 2010) contained references, so that I knew where the piece of information was coming from and that it was from a reliable source. It had a contents page, with the chapter and page number, making it easier for myself to find a particular subject. There was also an index pages, which helped me to locate useful information. There was a lot of technical words and some jargon in this book and I did have to make a note of the words I didn’t fully understand in order to go back and look them up to fully understand. Books can be presented by the media through the radio, billboards, television, social media sites and the internet. Understanding Health and social care is targeted at students and people working within the Health and social care sector. It is presented differently because it has lots of references and is updated when new information comes out or when what was previously written in the book has now become outdated.

In The Meaning of Life, Richard Taylor argues that meaningless lives our lives that consist of a repetitive cycle of struggles that do not give us any purpose. Taylor describes a meaningful life as one that has a purpose, and is creative and unique to that specific person. Also, the meaningful life is lived in a good and just manner. In The Meanings of Lives, Susan Wolf argues lives that are not involved in an activity that brings positive value are meaningless lives. A person that has a meaningless life by the standards of Taylor can still have a life that is going well for them. Their well-being is not dependent on whether they have a meaningful life or not. Wolf believes that meaningfulness is an important factor in a person’s well-being. Well-being is present when a person’s is living a life that is going positive according to themselves. A person who lives a life that is meaningless as a result of being repetitive and pointless can still have a life that is going well for them.
Although CHEER may seem hard and overwhelming to students, they have to push themselves to achieve an A in both courses. Establishing a growth mindset in summer school is key to being successful in the classes that are being taken. Students should take advantage of tutoring and lab time that is offered. Wisely using both opportunities, CHEER students have the ability to obtain an A in both courses. In order to do so, students have to keep a healthy brain by getting rest, exercising and living a healthy lifestyle. By doing such things, students will be prompt and ready for class.
"Life as We Knew It," is a book by Beth Pfeffer, which is known to be science fiction. The story involves environmental changes, which involves science but can be fictional as well because it is not likely to happen in reality. So this story was written by Beth Pfeffer and she had decided to write this book after watching a show about a meteor. She asked herself, what it would be like to be a teenager living in a catastrophe. Beth later came up with the story, writing it as a 16 year old girl's diary. The story first main point starts out with everyone getting ready to watch a meteor pass and ends up hitting the moon.
The most universal goal every human has in common is the pursuit of happiness or “creation or construction of happiness” (Achor, 78). To be able to fulfill this wish of becoming happy, people often think the key to achieving happiness is success. In the book, The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor, he debunks this theory of success leading to happiness by illustrating the reverse theory of success. Through dozens of studies and experiments as forms of evidence, the author argues that an individual needs to achieve happiness in order to be truly successful. Achor 's argument is valid in that happiness should come before success because there is a clear advantage to being successful in an individual’s work life, personal sphere, and liveliness if they are happy first and foremost.

Published in 1997, Marie Howe’s anthology of poems, What the Living Do was written as an elegy to her brother, John, who passed away due to AIDS. Howe’s anthology is written without metaphor to document the loss she felt after her brother’s death. Although What the Living Do is written as an anthology, this collection allows for individual poems to stand alone but also to work together to tell an overarching story. Using the poetic devices of alliteration, enjambment, repetition and couplets, Howe furthers her themes of gender and loss throughout her poems in her anthology.
Lifestyle Theory is a theory in Criminology created by Glenn Walters in 1990. Unsurprisingly this theory is just as the name would suggest, a lifestyle choice to be a criminal. This theory focuses heavily on the biological factors that influence a person’s ability to commit crime. Walters wrote three concepts to his theory: conditions, choice, and cognition. To start, I will address conditions. In Walters’s theory, he discusses the environmental and biological conditions that are involved in entering the criminal lifestyle. The environmental condition is based around your environment like the name suggests. What that means is that the decision to commit crime is due in part by your living situations and needs. This
What is wellness? “Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy life. Wellness is also a process for change and growth” (Health Topic – What is wellness?). To have acceptable wellness you should have an equal amount of social, emotional/mental, and physical health. I, myself, believe that I have an okay wellness, I mean not like full wellness but just enough to pass I'll say. But how am I living in wellness?
