Teenage Health Teaching Modules
Teenage Health Teaching Modules (THTM) is a successful, nationally used, and independently evaluated comprehensive school health curriculum for grades 6 to 12. It provides adolescents with the knowledge and skills to act in ways that enhance their immediate and long-term health. The evaluation of THTM concluded that the curriculum produced positive effects on students’ health knowledge, attitudes, and self-reported behaviors. The following essential health skills are highlighted in each of the modules: risk assessment, self-assessment, communication, decision-making, goal setting, health advocacy, and healthy self-management. THTM is comprised of a series of modules, each of which consists of a teacher’s guide with a detailed framework for conducting classroom activities and handouts that are designed to be duplicated for student use.
