Who can teach HealthSmart?

HealthSmart is designed to be easy to teach.

You don’t have to be an expert to provide learning experiences that will help students practice healthy behaviors. Both new and experienced teachers will appreciate the teacher-friendly design, and the program supplies everything needed to teach the lessons. Teacher preparation is minimal, and teaching steps are clearly defined. Because the program is designed to incorporate the characteristics of effective health education curricula and adheres to both the National Health Education Standards and the CDC's Health Education Curriculum Analysis Tool (HECAT) teachers can be sure they are providing the knowledge and skills their students need to become health literate, reduce their health risks and achieve key healthy behavior outcomes.
