Health Education: Spotlight on Equity Resources
Vermont rules and statutes require all schools to provide K-12 students with
health education. The goal of health education is for all students to develop health literacy.
Being health literate means having the knowledge, motivation, and competencies to access,
understand, appraise, and apply health information to make judgments and decisions to
maintain and live a healthy life. See the resources here.

Remote Learning Resources for Educators By Educators
SHAPE Vermont members are welcome to share and find ideas for meaningful remote instruction in Health and Physical Education. There are many wonderful resources shared daily on Twitter using the hashtag #HPEatHome! Teachers around the country and the world have been dealing with the same issues that we have been faced with here in Vermont. Remember, you are not alone in this! Teachers have been sharing materials and ideas like wildfire and many of those ideas are collected here.
If you decide to use any of these resources, PLEASE be sure to make a copy for yourself and add to your own Google Drive or hard drive. Do not click the "Request Edit Access" (this is a big faux pas in the online PLN world!).
Please utilize this Google link to share your teaching resources with other Vermont Educators. You will need to make your files accessible to share with other. SHAPE VT reserves the right to decide which resources and posts will be shared.
Materials should include the author, author's contact information, as well as the date of submission. Please include state standards where relevant.
