Publisher Description:

This one–semester health course for high school students is designed to provide them with an understanding of important health issues and to help them make wise choices.

Total Health encompasses all facets of health (spiritual, physical, mental, and social) written from a Christian perspective. Three components are available: teacher edition, student book, and test/quiz book. Content is on the conservative side. Little space is wasted on drug abuse or reproduction; the book tends to accentuate the positives, such as health, fitness, and nutrition. Medical discussions take a down-the-middle approach and assume you will visit a M.D., not a homeopath. Dating is considered acceptable, although group dating is encouraged. Above all, our relationship with God is given high priority, making this a "healthy" alternative to some secular counterparts.

The student text is softcover and includes the reading material, as well as end-of-chapter questions, explanation questions, discussion questions and suggested activities. The teachers edition includes topics to discuss each lesson, lists of additional resources, worksheets, activities, and more. Please note the supplemental materials CD is not included in the teacher edition anymore, it is now available online. Student and teacher (with answers) versions of the worksheets are included in the teachers edition. The test/quiz book contains tests and quizzes for each chapter, both with and without answers, for easy correction. The test/quiz book is not reproducible.

Required for my daughter's class at Freedom Project Academy. I LOVE Freedom Project Academy which partners with me in my children's homeschool education. They make it so easy to order the books for each subject too. Just click on each class book list and it goes right to Rainbow Resources where it is pre-bundled and ready for the check out cart.

The Teacher's Manual does not include the student text, therefore I am ordering an additional copy to use as the teacher.

Steven C on Oct 19, 2016
To have a general health course for high school. The text is good, however the chapter review exercises are positively uninspiring and exactly the same format for every chapter. Almost the equivalent of busy work. A bit disappointing. Wish there was more creativity in the review work. There are creative suggestions for projects, however for a half credit course I plan to only incorporate two to three of those throughout the semester.

Does this text book contain an answer key?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The teacher's guide has an answer key to some of the questions. It was not as helpful of a teacher's guide as I would have liked.
Is this book hardcover or the paperback edition?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: paperback
Will students write in the Total Health high school textbook? If not, should we purchase a notebook separately?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My son did not write in the book. He wrote answers on the handouts that the teacher provided. If he had to answer questions from the book, he used a separate sheet of paper and kept it in his notebook.
Is this 2nd edition?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The copyright is 2005 and it does not specify the edition anywhere on the book (bought last summer of 2015)

I used this book with my two highschoolers one who is advanced in ability and one who has a learning disability It worked very well for both of them It is very comprehensive yet written in a very enjoyable easy-to-read style I would highly recommend also purchasing the teacher's ed tests and quizzes It was very easy to use and well worth the price
