National Cardiovascular Health Conference 2002 Washington, D.C.Sandra Owen Georgia State UniversityGerald Berenson Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine Health Ahead/Heart Smart “A process for predicting compliance and aligning a K-6 cardiovascular curriculum to national Health Education, Science Education (personal health) and Technology Standards" and Tropical Medicine

  2. Purpose Revise the K-6 Health Ahead/Heart Smart curriculum to be aligned with national standards National Health Education StandardsScience K-4 (Scroll down to F section) Science 5-8 (Scroll down to F section) Science 9-12 (Scroll down to F section) Student Educational Technology Standards Health Ahead/Heart Smart

  6. Pre-Revision Analysis Health Education Criteria: 82% Health Education Standards: 78% CDC School Guidelines: 77% Curriculum Fundamentals: 75% Technology Standards O% Health Ahead/Heart Smart

  7. Post-Revision Analysis • All sections of the CAT met 100% compliance • Activities were developed to incorporate technology standards • Lessons were classified by Science Standard • Lessons were classified by Health Education Standard Health Ahead/Heart Smart

  8. Conclusion “Health Ahead/Heart Smart K-6 Curriculum offers schools coordinated, comprehensive, standards-based lessons which join the science of predictive risk behaviors with the effective application of protective health behaviors.” Health Ahead/Heart Smart
