Shannon, Hugh A., Daly, Craig B., & Ng, Connie (2007) HPE Teachers as Agents of Change – A Future of Possibility? In Austin, Jon & Hickey, Andrew (Eds.) Education for healthy communities : possibilities through SOSE and HPE. Pearson Education Australia, Frenchs Forest, N.S.W., pp. 211-228.

Abstract

Education for Healthy Communities surveys the possibilities that the Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) and Health and Physical Education (HPE) curriculum areas have for the development of healthy communities. Through an investigation of contemporary understandings of community and educational practice, this book offers suggestions for those teaching SOSE and HPE to develop healthy community practices and engage the full potential of these curriculum areas. A number of case studies of emancipatory practice are included in this book, following investigations of the curriculum areas and their associated syllabuses. Education for Healthy Communities intends to offer a fresh perspective for viewing SOSE and HPE as areas key to building healthy communities via emancipatory pedagogy.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
