Essential Skills for Personal Success (2010)

Module 2: Manage my health

This is the workbook for the second module of the “Essential Skills for Personal Success!” curriculum. It focuses on skills for managing health, including reading health information pamphlets, filling in a medical history form and applying for a health card. The authors also discuss the specific health challenges of losing weight and quitting smoking.

To illustrate the material being taught, the authors use four students from CAST – Community Adult Skills and Training – who are improving their essential skills. The four students – two men and two women – range in age from 18 to 46.

The authors include a variety of learning activities and provide checklists so learners can evaluate their essential skills at the beginning and end of the chapter.
