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.
