Action Planning/Personal Plans for Wellness
Overview of Concept
In K-9 Health Education and Wellness 10, students have opportunities to take action to improve personal health and/or the health of others. The design, implementation, and evaluation of action plans or personal plans for wellness, occurs with different levels of autonomy and support as students progress from Kindergarten through high school. Doing something with what is known and understood happens several times throughout each school year in ways that are meaningful, engaging, and relevant to the lives of students and the communities in which they live. At different grade levels, many interdisciplinary connections can be made, for example, to English Language Arts (Compose and Create), Arts Education (Creative/Productive), and Physical Education (Active Living).
