Michigan School Health Coordinators' Association
Healthy Students are Better Learners
Knowing this year may have districts offering at a distance learning at various points throughout the school year, the Michigan School Health Coordinators' Association (MiSHCA) wanted to help local MMH trained teachers get a jump start on planning content that will support the well-being of our youth.
MiSHCA, along with local health teachers, reviewed the content provided in the Michigan Model for Health Curriculum and looked for lessons that lended themselves to being taught in an at a distance format.
Particular emphasis was placed on units or strands of Health Education that are of particular importance in supporting student well-being in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This included: Social and Emotional Health, Safety, Personal Health and Wellness (emphasis on infectious disease prevention), Nutrition and Physical Activity, and Substance Misuse Prevention.
