Web Resources to Effectively Engage Students of all Literacy Levels in a Health Classroom
HELLO ALL! I am Kate Butz and I am a Health Education and Family and Consumer Science Education major at Ball State University. On this scoop.it site you will find various articles, journals, videos, and blog postings all chosen help to teach health and wellness to students of different literacy levels in a high school classroom. I chose to form this website around effectively engaging students of all literacy levels in a Health classroom because I think it is so important to meet the needs of every student, not just the “majority”.

Some of these articles are more advanced, meant to reach my students with high literacy levels. While others are not as advanced and would be easier for someone with a low literacy level to follow. However, no matter how advanced, or in advanced an article may be, I believe each one has a way of further developing that specific individual’s literacy level. Whether that be through the form of reading and understanding new terminology, or introducing new concepts.

I tried to form my scoops around promoting health and wellness in the classroom. Topics range from things such as nutrition and physical activity, all the way to smoking cessation. While looking for articles, journals, blogs, and videos, I tried to keep everything fairly recent. Like within the past year or so. I find this extremely important because outdated information is useless information. I also looked for credible sources. I steered away from facebook, twitter or instagram scoops. Places where anyone can add information.

I hope you find my scoops compelling and of possible use to you in your current or future classrooms. Please feel free to comment or share any ideas thoughts or information on any of my scoops to better my teaching strategies, and others!

ENJOY!
