Written from a Canadian perspective, the Nutrition and Health Student Resource and Teacher Resource will address all learning outcomes for both:
Nutrition and Health, Grade 12—University Preparation HFA4U
Nutrition and Health, Grade 12—College Preparation HFA4C
The Nutrition and Health Student Resource is the essential student guide to the crucial role nutrition plays in overall health. This resource demonstrates the importance of eating a balanced diet and being active to maintain energy balance. It examines the function of nutrients in the body, how nutritional needs change across the lifespan or in response to illness and disease, and how eating patterns and trends affect people’s diets. This book introduces students to local and global issues related to nutrition, including factors that affect food production and supply around the world as well as what is needed to achieve and maintain food security. With this book as their guide, students will be able to apply tools such as Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide and the Dietary Reference Intake tables to assess their own nutritional status and plan menus for themselves and others.
This book illustrates how to connect students to the natural world and encourage them to care about a more sustainable, ecologically secure planet. Describing the key principles of an approach to teaching called Imaginative Ecological Education (IEE), it offers a practical guide for all teachers (K–12). It is designed for use with any curriculum to give students opportunities to engage their bodies, emotions, and imaginations in the world around them, thereby making learning meaningful.
The Learning in Depth Program (LiD) has captured the imagination of teachers and students in over a dozen countries around the world. This innovative program fosters curiosity and nurtures a love of learning by allowing students to become self-directed experts on a topic over the course of their schooling.
Designed for teachers who will be supervising the development of students’ LiD portfolios, this resource kit addresses practical matters of keeping students imaginatively engaged with their LiD topics.
Understanding Dyslexia and Other Learning Disabilities addresses how our educational system has failed to identify many children with learning disabilities and calls for the adoption of straightforward diagnostic techniques so that treatment options can be implemented at a young age. Many children who struggle with learning become discouraged in the classroom and isolated from their peers. Many adults whose learning disabilities were not recognized in school suffer from deep feelings of inadequacy that often prevent them from developing close relationships, finding rewarding employment, or living happily.
In this accessibly written book, Linda Siegel challenges the use of complex and time-consuming testing that is currently used to diagnose learning disabilities. In their place, she outlines simple and pragmatic techniques for testing for disabilities in reading, mathematics, spelling, and writing.
