This curriculum area project is a summation of the collaborative effort of the East Meadow middle school and high school Health teachers to align the curriculum across the school district. The Common Core Standards and New York State Health Learning Standards have been incorporated into the writing of this project. Evidence of critical thinking and higher level learning questions, functional knowledge, digital technology integration and group activities is demonstrated. Lessons have been designed to include performance tasks, essential questions, learning activities, and evidence of learning. There is a variety of instructional, student centered activities designed to develop and maintain student interest and motivation by addressing diversified learning styles to meet the needs of all students.
