Unit 3: Integrating Health Literacy Skills in the Classroom


Learning Objectives

  • Identify areas in which they can implement health information literacy into an existing lesson plan
  • Integrate and create a health information literacy lesson plan within the given lesson plan format


We have gone over the importance of health literacy and critical appraisal techniques in the last two units. This unit will take our newfound knowledge and skills and integrate them into an existing lesson plan (or better- create a new lesson)! This lesson plan should have a technological component and incorporate important concepts and skills covered in units one and two.
