A Pedagogic System of Implementing the Principle of Life and Health Priority of Students at a Rural General Education School
Theoretical, methodological and technological aspects of establishing a pedagogic system to implement the principle of health and life priority of students at a rural general education school are discussed in the paper. The health culture, being a part of the integral personal culture is considered a basic pre-condition for establishing the healthy lifestyle in the conditions of interaction and interinfluence of the man-society system, and, if applied to the educational system, the ‘learner – general education institution – socium around’. This paper justifies basic methodological requirements to developing a pedagogic system to implement the principle of health and life priority of students at a country general education, comprising the following: a) creating an educational space of the rural school as an existence space of the students in the conditions of actualization and involvement of social institutions to enrich the space with the ideas of conserving and improving health; ensuring their unidirectional effect on the students for the purpose of the systemic effect; b) establishing a pedagogic technique, aiming at students’ health conservation and direction; cultivating health culture of subjects of the educational space includes teaching, educational and sports and health promotion blocks. The paper discloses social and cultural, political, and socioeconomic factors of the country as an existence space of the students, discovers cause-and-effect relations between the absence of experience in education and health promotion in order to conserve and improve health not only of the students, but of all subjects of the educational space within the country (teachers, parents, and fellows) and the level of culture of the students. Comparison of own-generated data and data obtained by the authors earlier, while actualizing social, organizational and pedagogic conditions and methodological approaches to building the students’ health culture were used; an agreement of research findings in terms of quality with the findings presented in the pedagogic works on the subject matter, and also works on individual techniques and technologies of building the health culture in the conditions of the general education school was established.
