On this page you’ll find the 2015-16 Classroom Teacher’s Guide that can be used to integrate Healthy NewsWorks health-focused school newspapers and Leading Healthy Change In Our Communities books into elementary and middle school classrooms.
The suggested lessons and activities are designed for ALL teachers in Healthy NewsWorks schools to use in their classrooms. They will help you make the most of the nonfiction resources created by students in your schools and are aligned with Common Core Standards and National Health Education Standards.
Each lesson is leveled for younger readers (K-3) and older readers (4-8). We refer to the younger readers as Beginning Healthy Advocates (BHA) and older readers as Advanced Health Advocates (AHA).
This guide is a work in progress and we welcome your feedback and suggestions. Email us at Editor@HealthyNewsWorks.org. Thank you for your interest!
