2 Interpreting Dimensions of Health HE.912.C.1.2 Interpret the significance of interrelationships in mental/emotional, physical, and social health. Explanation Your health dimensions physical, mental/emotional, social, and intellectual are like puzzle pieces that need to be fitted together to make meaning. Attaining a harmonious balance between mind and body can prove to be quite difficult. Greater understanding of the role that the dimensions of health play in our lives and how the dimensions are interrelated can lead us to what we seek the most health and happiness. Examples Here are some examples of students with healthy and unhealthy dimensions of health: Healthy: Wendell is invited to a party where he thinks that teenagers will be drinking. He considers the risks he might encounter if he goes: he could get in trouble for being at a party with underage drinking, he could get pressured into drinking, or he might find himself without a safe way to get home. He realizes any one of those problems would affect multiple dimensions of his health, so he sees a movie with friends instead. He has a good time without harming his health. Unhealthy: Eva avoids studying for an important test. When she receives a failing grade on the test, her class grade suffers. Now she cannot play soccer until she brings the grade up. Eva s mental/emotional and social health are lowered because she is sad she cannot play soccer with her friends and is stressed about school. Her physical health is also negatively affected because she is less active. One unhealthy choice led to several negative consequences.

4 Media s Influence on Health HE.912.C.2.5 Evaluate the effect of media on personal and family health. Explanation Media can affect your personal health and your family s health. Constant exposure to media messages (delivered via media such as television, internet, video games, movies, music, magazines, and advertisements) can influence how you and your family think or act. Sometimes media has a positive influence on people, but at other times, it can have a negative influence. Remember that you and your family have control over many influences in your lives. Examples Here are some examples of how media can positively and negatively influence personal and family health. Positive influence: Fernando watched a documentary about music programs offered in schools. The filmmakers claimed that learning to play an instrument helps students to avoid boredom and to improve the quality of their lives. That spring, Fernando signed up for trumpet lessons and by the fall qualified to play in the school concert band. Fernando made new friends and even saw an improvement in his grades. Negative influence: Carly noticed that characters on her favorite television show always wore extremely high heeled shoes. Because she wanted to be like those characters, she started wearing high heels as often as she could. Within a year, Carly developed painful bunions on her feet and her lower back started to ache.

Public policy solutions attempt to resolve local, state, and federal issues. When lawmakers and judges decide whether to pass legislation, to give prominence to a particular political position, or to make a judgment about an issue, past and present public policy influences their decisions. Examples The world that you live in is a product of many different public policies some local, some state, and some federal. One example of policy that is handled at the state level is the regulation of drivers. One aspect of this public policy is that elderly drivers are re-tested more frequently than other drivers in certain states. This policy is opposed by some people and groups and supported by others. Other examples of public policy include foreign policy (federal), education policy (mostly state and local), and crime policy (federal, state, and local).

10 Justify the Validity of Technologies to Gather Health Information HE.912.B.3.3 Justify the validity of a variety of technologies to gather health information. Explanation How do you justify the validity of technologies that are used to gather health information? Is there a way to prove that the source you are using to gather health information is valid? In order to gather health information that you can trust to be accurate, you need to know how to prove that the technology you are using provides valid information or results. Examples Here are some examples of students who used different technologies to gather health information and tried to justify the validity of the technologies they used. Gustaf is writing a report on accident and injury prevention for his health class, and he wants to focus on how to avoid sports-related injuries. He decides to focus on a.gov website, which he knows will provide current and reliable information. Gustaf searches (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) and finds a few articles with information on injury and accident prevention. He knows that the information on this web site is valid because it is all supported by references and scientific studies. Annika is helping her dad look for a cell phone app to manage his diabetes. Her dad wants something portable that can help him monitor his symptoms and give him medication alerts and reminders. Annika decides to research several different apps to find if the data each provides is valid and trusted. During her research, Annika finds a scientific study about two of the apps that showed serious faults in two of the important features her dad is looking for. Neither of these apps could be justified as valid, so Annika tells her dad that she thinks asking their doctor to recommend a trusted app might be a good idea.

Explanation Important decisions that affect your health or the health of others require thoughtful decision-making that could result in improved health or the avoidance of an unhealthy or potentially dangerous situation. What is the value in applying a thoughtful decisionmaking process when your health or someone else s health is at stake? Examples Think about the value of applying thoughtful decision-making in each of these health-related situations: Bruno and four of his friends are playing basketball after school when it starts pouring. The friends all run for shelter to wait out the rain when one of the friends exclaims, You guys! My brother just got his license. I m going to text him and tell him we need a ride. We can all pile in the car and then we don t have to walk in the rain. Jana and Mila both like to swim. Mila discovered a lake that is not far from her house.

14 Monitor Current Public Issues in Florida SS.912.C.2.10 Monitor current public issues in Florida. Explanation One way that you can fulfill your civic duty as a citizen of the state of Florida is to be informed about public issues. By monitoring current public issues in Florida, you can learn about people, problems, programs, and solutions that are at the forefront in various communities. Learning about a solution to a particular issue may spark your interest in learning more about the various public issues facing Floridians every day. Example One example of a recent issue important to Floridians is the spread of the giant African land snail. First spotted in Florida in 2011, these huge mollusks can grow to the size of a rat. They can eat their way through the stucco and plastic in homes and will consume large amounts of vegetation. They have no known natural predators and a snail can produce, on average, 1,200 eggs per year. Without a coordinated program to curtail their spread, African land snails will soon spread across certain areas in southern Florida.

16 Analyze Public Policy Solutions SS.912.C.2.11 Analyze public policy solutions or courses of action to resolve a local, state, or federal issue. Explanation Governments implement public policies in order to enact laws, regulations, decisions, or actions in order to solve problems. Public policy solutions attempt to solve local, state, and federal problems. Present public policy decisions can be affected by past public policy in turn, once enacted, present public policy can affect future public policy outcomes. Example Political decisions help craft public policies some public policies are local, some are state, and still others are federal. One example of policy that is handled at the local level is the recent attempt by some local governments to tax nonprofit organizations. During the recent economic downturn, many cities who prior to that had not expected nonprofit organizations to pay taxes began to ask nonprofits to pay fees or taxes. Nonprofits objected, claiming that they served the public and paid a public debt through their actions and operations. Some cities and towns felt that nonprofits needed to begin to contribute more to public coffers. Different cities and towns have enacted different public policies to deal with this issue.

22 Evaluate the Ideals and Principles of Founding Documents SS.912.C.1.3 Evaluate the ideals and principles of the founding documents (Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, Federalist Papers) that shaped American Democracy. Explanation The basic principles of American political ideals include concepts such as separation of powers, popular sovereignty, checks and balances, judicial review, federalism, and limited government. Several of the founding documents the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Federalist Papers provide insight into the struggles of early American leaders with these concepts. Keep in Mind... Several examples of the basics principles of American ideals as embodied in the founding documents are as follows: Popular sovereignty is the belief that governments are legitimate if they reflect the will or consent of the governed the people are the source of political power. One line from the Declaration of Independence that states this belief is Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. The title of The Federalist No. 51 is The Structure of the Government Must Furnish the Proper Checks and Balances. Checks and balances are forces or influences within a government that counterbalance one another. The Articles of Confederation offered no system of courts and established no independent judiciary or system of judicial review. States could ignore anything they disagreed with, even if mandated by Congress because there was no way to enforce Congress s laws.
