Enhancing Personal, Social and Health Education offers an accessible and thought-provoking approach to developing effective practice in PSHE. The book uses case study examples to offer insights and reflections that will support practitioners developing work in their own schools. The authors begin by examining the national PSHE framework and guidelines, outlining the essential ingredients of effective practice. Subsequent chapters provide case study examples of PSHE practice in primary and secondary schools and broader whole school initiatives. The book offers many useful ideas for planning and teaching PSHE, but also raises fundamental questions about policy at national and local levels, and the extent to which current guidance is helpful and supportive. It will be essential reading for all teachers committed to nurturing the personal and social development of their students.

Meet the Challenge of Comprehensive Health Education in Elementary School Human Kinetics recognizes that health education may be challenging to fit into your busy schedule. That is why we developed the World of Wellness Health Education series (WOW!): -With WOW! you can deliver top-quality health education within the limited hours of the school day, promote health literacy, meet the mandates of No Child Left Behind legislation, and enhance your efforts to achieve the objectives of the overall curriculum that you work so hard to implement. -WOW! is designed to develop strong and compelling links between what students should know and what they should be able to do in the areas of reading and writing. -Finally--but no less importantly--WOW! emphasizes the importance of physical activity and nutrition throughout the health education strands. Through careful design and execution, a coordinated approach, and consideration for real students and teachers in real school settings, WOW! not only helps you meet the challenge, but does so in a way that appeals to kids of all ages. Fun. Easy. Complete. The World of Wellness Health Education series enables you to teach your students the importance of leading an active and healthy life through conceptually grounded, context-based lessons. What's even more exciting is that while your students are learning, they'll become acquainted with a very special group of friends who will take them on a wellness journey throughout the school year. Ruby, Cody, T.J., Sydney, and others will help your students learn about health while strengthening their abilities in reading, writing, and other cross-curricular topics. WOW! functions as a group of kits--without the cost of a kit! Ancillaries other publishers might make you pay extra for are included with the teacher's guides for each level of the WOW! series at a very affordable price. Plus, few supplies are need for delivering the dynamic lessons found in WOW!, and the few little things you might need for activities or demonstrations are inexpensive and easily found in a school or discount store. That means that you can deliver WOW! content expertly, smoothly, and affordably with very little prep time! Coordinated School Health Connections Today's child needs an updated, multifaceted approach in order to achieve health literacy, or the ability to make choices that will enhance personal health and well-being now and in the future. For many years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have promoted the key to children's health and well-being through their Coordinated School Health Model. This model encompasses eight interactive areas: -Health education -Physical education -Health services -Nutrition services -Counseling, psychological, and social services -Healthy school environment -Health promotion for staff -Family and community involvement WOW! Delivers Coordinated School Health With concern rapidly growing about childhood obesity, inactivity, and other health risks such as type 2 diabetes, states and municipalities are now responding by passing laws requiring coordinated school health. The WOW! Health Education series meets these needs by providing the four components that are most frequently required: -Health education core content meeting the relevant national standards -Physical education helping students meet the national standards -Parent involvement newsletters provided per unit and per grade level, in both English and Spanish -Nutrition education and services for students and parents alike. Professional development opportunities are available through the authors to support each essential component. This Is How WOW! Works Each level of The World of Wellness Health Education series consists of the following: -a teacher's guide -a teacher's resource CD-ROM -a student book that corresponds to the students' levels For kindergarten students, the student book is a big book, a large colorful book for the teacher to read to the group; first- through fifth-grade students have their own books. In addition, an abridged first-grade student book is available in big book format. Color Coding Across the series, kindergarten through fifth grade, WOW! uses a color-coded system to denote grade levels. This allows you the additional flexibility of using a lower level to meet the needs of students with academic challenges or a higher level to challenge gifted students. In today's world of tight budgets and increasing demands on school resources, rest assured that the WOW! student books are not intended to be used as workbooks. Rather, they are meant to last multiple years while still being cost-effective. This complies with the directives of most school districts not to purchase student consumables.

As countries strive to reform education systems and improve student results, school leadership is high on education policy agendas. But in many countries, the men and women who run schools are overburdened, underpaid and near retirement. Based on an OECD study of school leadership practices and policies around the world, and offering a cross country perspective, Volume 1 identifies four policy levers and a range of policy options to help governments improve school leadership now and build sustainable leadership for the future. Volume 2 explores what specialists are saying about system leadership for school improvement. Case studies examine innovative approaches to sharing leadership across schools in Belgium (Flanders), Finland and the United Kingdom (England) and leadership development programs for system improvement in Australia and Austria. As these are emerging practices, the book provides a first international comparison and assessment of the state of the art of system leadership.--Publisher's description.
