Teach This! Teaching with lesson plans and ideas that rock #teaching 04/24/2012
This website has a lot of free downloads about body image from Kathy Kater. I have a friend on FAcebook who is recovering from an eating disorder who has really brought it to my attention the danger of not discussing healthy body image and self esteem. Summer is a time students aren't as supervised and faced with bathing suits, some girls resort to desperate measures. Let's look for healthy ways to talk about this topic now before summer hits.
A body image lesson from Media Smart. The UK is using this as part of their "body confidence" campaign but it is a great set to look at for those working with body image and self esteem of any kind. There are a lot of great media smart resources here for guidance counselors and health teachers.
Topical studies are great. The London Marathon just happened and marathons are increasing in popularity here in the United states. Here is a video about the marathon, but also lesson plans about the Battle of Marathon, information on training to improve fitness and just what it takes physically to train for a marathon. Health and history lessons here.
