Curriculum (What will we be teaching in BLT for the fiscal 16 year beginning October 1)
In an effort to document BLT outcomes (which should be focused on behavioral change), we will be using the following curricula for the upcoming program year. (See below.) These curricula were chosen because they match the goals/objectives of SNAP-Ed at the state and federal level and because they have evaluation instruments that allow us to capture program impacts.
- Walk Across Texas (Walk and Talk)
- Back to Basics (revised edition)
- Learn, Grow, Eat Go (for counties trained in November 2014)
As part of our environmental approach to increasing access to vegetables and fruits, 6 Counties will be conducting the Growing and Nourishing Healthy Communities community garden program.
