This Parent-Teen Communicator deals with family medical risk factors.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can help your students' health and be a "Super Star" in your parents' eyes as well! Parents LOVE these parent-teen homework assignments!

Here is what my 9th grade parents had to say:

"You were awesome!! I wish other teachers communicated more often to parents like you do...!!

"Thank you so much for the valuable teaching you have imparted to students and their parents this last semester."

"You're the best."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Be a "Super Star" in your parents' eyes, and foster parent to teen discussions related to health topics at the same time!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This totally organized resource includes:

1. Step-by-step teacher directions that include class discussion and homework tips

2. 10-slide PowerPoint on Cancer and Disease

3. "I Got Skin Cancer at 17" True Story Article

This resources meets State, National, and Common Core Standards!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am encouraging each student to research his or her family medical history now, in the event that when this information is needed it will be readily available. Even though we cannot change our family genetic make-up, knowing our family medical history can help us reduce the risk of developing health problems, recognize signs and symptoms, or learn how to manage diseases more effectively. Researching these diseases can save lives.

A signature page only is returned. Nothing needs to be written down from the conversation except a parent signature.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a great way to promote parent-teen communication for your students. I always get great feedback from students and especially from parents. They really appreciate the opportunity to talk with their child about topics that might not have normally come up.
