Written by Sussie Eshun of East Stroudsburg University, this guide includes activities that allow students to do basic research and apply their investigative skills as they explore such concepts as stress, chronic illness, self-health checks, and more. Each activity includes worksheets and a reflection section called "The Way I See It." The workbook's perforated pages allow students to easily tear out the worksheets and hand them in to you.
