Product Format
    Live Well: Comprehensive High School Health helps students understand the importance of developing healthy habits, eating well, and being physically active. They’ll also learn how to maintain emotional, mental, and social health; how to avoid risky behaviors; and how to protect themselves and the environment.

    Through the text, students will develop skills like these:
    • Identifying reliable sources of health information and becoming savvy consumers
    • Strengthening decision making skills as they identify healthy solutions in challenging situations
    • Sharpening communication skills as they share health knowledge, engage in advocacy, and manage interpersonal conflicts
    • Analyzing the influences of family, peers, media, and technology on their health and wellness
    Students will also learn to set goals, establish healthy living plans, advocate for healthy living at home and in their communities, and discern how health and technology intersect.

    Aligned With Standards
    Live Well: Comprehensive High School Health includes comprehensive health content that is aligned with the National Health Education Standards as well as many state standards.

    The text offers students a variety of features and tools:
    • Skill-building activities to develop health literacy
    • Case studies, healthy living tips, career connections, writing prompts, cross-curricular connections, and more tools to learn and apply health concepts and skills
    • Vocabulary terms and definitions, available in both English and Spanish, with audio pronunciations
    • Worksheets and quizzes; modified versions of the worksheets meet the needs of ELL and ESL students

    Print, Digital, and Teacher Resources
    Live Well: Comprehensive High School Health is available as a hardcover text, an ebook, and an interactive web text (IWT). Students can access the IWT from a computer, tablet, or mobile device. It contains the same content as the print book but uses interactive audio, video, worksheets, and other tools to help students engage with the material and to enhance learning. Live Well: Comprehensive High School Health is the only interactive ebook on the market in both English and Spanish. (The interactive web text is available separately to schools that adopt the student textbook. Please contact the Human Kinetics K-12 sales department for details.)

    The print book and ebook also come with a web resource that offers easy access to materials referenced in the text, including note-taking guides, vocabulary terms with English and Spanish definitions and audio pronunciations, Skill-Building Challenge worksheets, and chapter reviews. Schools that adopt the student text can also get a teacher’s guide in an online format or as a PDF.

    With its flexibility, its high-quality content, and its alignment with national and state standards, Live Well: Comprehensive High School Health is a great resource to help high school students learn and practice the skills that will lead to a life of health and wellness.
