Michigan Model for Health
The Michigan Model for Health™ (MMH) curriculum has been updated in Social and Emotional Health and the Nutrition and Physical Activity units. This recent update includes new videos to replace older media (Grades 1, 4, 6 and High School), and a newly revised and updated lesson on eating disorders and body image (6th grade). The digital online version of the curriculum has already been updated with these changes. Teachers using the print manual will soon receive information on downloadable addenda pages to update your curriculum manual.
The digital version of the MMH curriculum now has a new print feature allowing teachers to download and print lesson plans. Teachers have the option of printing the lesson plan outline (usually 1 or 2 pages) or full lesson plan with scripted notes.
Coming this fall, middle and high school health teachers using the digital MMH curriculum will have access to new student online lessons from the alcohol, tobacco, and other drug prevention module/unit to use as an alternative method for instruction from the traditional teacher led lessons. There are four online lessons for the middle and high school MMH curriculum. The online lessons can be used in the classroom with minimal facilitation by the health teacher or given as assignments for students to do outside of the classroom.
These updates and revisions are part of the continuous improvement process to ensure that MMH curriculum content is both relevant and up to date for teachers and students.
If you have any questions about MMH, please email me at email@example.com.
There are five regions for SHAPE Michigan. The OAISD is in Region 2 and Tess Armstrong from Grand Valley State University is our representative. If you have any questions, you can reach out to Tess at firstname.lastname@example.org.
