I’ve published a fair amount number of posts about lessons and tools I use to help promote a physically healthy lifestyle for my students, including research that shows how essential it is for learning.
I thought it would be useful to me, and to readers, if I tried to bring them all together in one post.
First, I’ll start off with what I think are the best resources for giving a good overview of research and resources about the importance of schools taking a role in this kind of health promotion:
Health and Academic Achievement is from The Centers For Disease Control.
Health and Academics is also from The CDC.
Healthier Students Are Better Learners is from Teachers College at Columbia University.
Ready to learn? The science behind the experiment – video is from The BBC and discusses a major study on health, teens and learning.
Health Education: Building Knowledge and Skills for a Healthy Life is from Learning First.
