Teachers' Domain, Teaching Environmental Public Health: An Introduction, published June 15, 2012, retrieved on ,
This lesson designed for professional development is a general introduction to the subject of environmental public health. Explore how people's environment relates to their health and how they can learn to reduce exposure to health hazards. View videos, use interactive activities, and answer questions to explore five basic topics in environmental public health: conditions and diseases, exposures and risk, research methods, community action, and health policy. Finish the lesson by using the five topics as a framework to examine an environmental health hazard of your own choosing.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
