The ten content areas within the CA Health Content Standards and the four components of Health Literacy are evaluated as students incorporate these concepts into the design of grade-level appropriate integrated lessons. The lessons are a demonstration of their abilities to evaluate current student needs, identify health goals, formulate learning objectives from state-adopted academic content standards, and plan instruction utilizing various models of teaching.
