9781450401845: Heart Education With Web Resource: Strategies, Lessons, Science, and Technology for Cardiovascular Fitness

Capitalize on teens’ fascination with technology! Heart Education: Strategies, Lessons, Science, and Technology for Cardiovascular Fitness uses heart monitoring technology to help students learn concepts of cardiovascular fitness in a fun and innovative way. With the benefits of immediate and constant feedback, heart rate monitoring technology provides an engaging way for students to monitor their exercise sessions.

Heart Education is based on the author’s principles of Heart Zones Education, a comprehensive cardiovascular fitness program for physical education that examines wellness from the viewpoints of health, fitness, and athletic performance. Designed for students ages 11 to 18, Heart Education incorporates key aspects of the middle school and high school texts of Healthy Hearts in the Zone with the most current information on training and technology.

Heart Education’s 10-step program provides a series of modules with lesson plans, making it simple to present and easy to learn. The program gets students using heart monitors from the start, letting them experience the rush of seeing their heart rate display. Students will learn functions of heart monitoring, how to apply them based on individual heart rate data, and how to set realistic physical activity goals. Teachers and students can choose from over 20 health and fitness workouts and apply strategies for athletic performance training using heart zones.

Heart Education also tackles emotional fitness with structured plans to reduce stress, build positive connections with others, and contribute to a stable emotional outlook throughout the turbulent adolescent years. Also featured are lessons incorporating heart zones concepts into popular outdoor recreation activities such as adventure racing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, geocaching, and orienteering.

This guidebook features

· a lesson plan finder for easy reference to each lesson and its accompanying student materials;

· a web resource containing all worksheets, station cards, training logs, and other forms for easy printing;

· additional resources including a hardware guide for heart rate monitors, troubleshooting tips, and a series of circuit training stations for reassessment; and

· recommended health assessments that support the strategies of the Heart Zone Training (HZT) system.

Although some forms of technology may be viewed as contributing to an overall decline in physical activity, heart rate monitoring technology can provide a way to empower students to reach their personal health and fitness goals. Heart Education: Strategies, Lessons, Science, and Technology for Cardiovascular Fitness can help you maximize students’ activity time with appealing, technology-based tools and scientifically sound strategies to positively affect their cardiovascular fitness.
