HOPE Textbook

This innovative new textbook, with a full suite of related resources, has been created to support student development and enhancement of healthy behaviors that influence their lifestyle choices and health and fitness.

A key feature of this curriculum is the complete integration of physical education and health concepts and skills to maximize student interest, learning, and application. This objective was accomplished by combining the expertise of our author teams from two related textbooks--Fitness for Life, Sixth Edition, and Health for Life.

This is not just a health textbook with a few physical education concepts thrown in. School systems that want a single textbook to help them address national, state, and local standards for both physical education and health education will find that this book provides them a unique and cost-effective option.
