Evaluation

This textbook would contribute to a classroom setting for Health Education. It covers almost all of the core standards. However, I do wish it would have gone more into dep with Cell Phone addictions and social media. I feel that is very severe now with depression and anxiety and needs to be addressed more. Overall, everything was covered and I liked the Skills Assessments when chapters had them.

I would want my students to walk away with skills based learning instead of just knowledge based.
