Walk with it, talk with it, learn from it, (share it)!

Challenge:
It can often be challenging to develop projects for diverse student populations with various reading levels and learning styles. At Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, a particular challenge was creating curriculum for first year students in the Community Worker program to teach the holistic nature of health promotion. 

Solution:
Students use the Circle of Health throughout the Health Promotion course in their field practicum as well as in their other courses as a tool for planning for a research paper, in which students select a wedge of the Circle of Health to evaluate their college community. experiential exercise integrates the course learning. The students become excited about the Circle of Health and use it.
