Asthma Education: An Integrated Approach contains lessons created by teachers and tested in their elementary classrooms. Each lesson plan is compatible with existing traditional elementary curricula for math, science, health, or language arts. The teachers designed the lesson plans to be simple and easy to use. The lesson plans provide an opportunity to teach all children how to monitor their own health and to teach children who have asthma how to play a role in the management of their condition.
