Ideas On Choosing The Correct Health Curriculum


When we were homeschooling high school, we used the book “Total Health” as our curriculum. We used both the Jr. High and the Senior High texts. My boys liked them both. In cases where you are getting one, I would find the one that best meets the age of your child. If they are 9th grade or under, or if they are really sheltered and older, get the Jr High. If they are over 9th grade, or go out with their youth groups, other secular kids, etc., then I would get the Sr. High version.

We opted not to get the workbooks, however. I wanted them to learn the content yet I had so many other high powered courses at the time, I didn’t choose to have yet another thing for them to be tested on. We were doing Latin and Biology and stuff at the time, and it would have been just too much. Both times I used Total Health, I mixed it with their sporting activities to make it a PE credit. I decided not to list Health separately on their transcript. With their sporting activities, I did have an EASY 150 hours of PE, and I did give them a full credit, but they were doing soccer, swim team and baseball at the time.

If I had listed Total Health on it’s own on the transcript, I think I would have given it 1/2 credit, because even with the tests, I don’t believe it would take the time for a full year at 1 hour a day to complete. In Washington State, we are required to teach health at some point in their lives, yet they don’t specify when or how much, as a result I had no requirement as to it being a full credit in high school. If you choose to supplement for high school health to make it a full credit, consider taking a CPR or basic first aid course.

Total Health is a wonderful book, and the two of my boys loved it. In fact, when I got the first one, the kids ended up reading it independently over summer well before school even started. It had a excellent tone, and had a nice balance between conservative factors as well as some of the issues that Christian kids might face at school or youth group.
