Promoting Health and Academic Success 2nd Edition With HKPropel Access

Promoting Health and Academic Success 2nd Edition With HKPropel Access

The WSCC Approach

$118.95 CAD


Product Format
    Promoting Health and Academic Success was the first book to cover the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model, now a widely accepted framework for promoting health and learning in schools. With increasing evidence that health and academic success go hand in hand, this second edition delves deeper into the WSCC approach to showcase best practices that truly put the child at the center of health and education.

    Promoting Health and Academic Success, Second Edition With HKPropel Access, boasts a team of editors and contributors who have experience as leaders in school health and WSCC at the national, state, and local levels. It provides direction for educators, school health professionals, and health agencies interested in promoting student health, diversity, equity, inclusion, and advocacy for the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the WSCC approach.

    The second edition has been updated to incorporate the knowledge and experiences that have been gained since the first edition of the book:
    • Discussion of new challenges for schools and communities such as COVID-19, school safety, and curriculum and programming decisions related to social justice and racism
    • Real-world examples to provide practice and multiple perspectives on WSCC
    • Application activities and case studies that engage students in applied learning within the context of WSCC simulations
    • Related online learning tools, delivered in HKPropel, including review items, and project-based assignments
    • Perspectives from WSCC leaders related to current practice and future WSCC considerations
    This resource is a must-have for the planning, implementation, and evaluation of initiatives  designed to promote education and health for students through meaningful engagement of family members, community members, and school faculty and staff members. The coordinated initiatives presented in Promoting Health and Academic Success: The WSCC Approach, Second Edition, provide a valuable resource for educators, community health practitioners, and other stakeholders engaged in promoting health and academic success for school-age children.

    Note: A code for accessing HKPropel is included with all new print books.
