Masterclass 3 2024:
Teaching and assessing health literacy can be a challenge for generalist and specialist HPE teachers.
Health literacy and being health literate can help children and young people access, understand, appraise, critique and apply health information to make judgements and decisions. While the internet and social media provide instant and widespread access to health information, it can also be a source of misinformation and disinformation. Teaching the critical skills to be health literate is a key role of PDHPE.
Learn practical ways to enhance students’ skills through your PDHPE lessons. Bring along one of your health education units for practical strategies on how to teach and assess health literacy.
