Write a paper (3 pages in length) summarizing your findings on evidence-based strategies and a workplan to address the health behavior.(TEEN PREGNANCY) A workplan sample can be found at…
The following items will be assessed in particular:

Using the same topic you have chosen from Module 1 SLP,(TEEN PREGNANCY) develop a program goal and at least two objectives (1 learning objective and 1 behavioral objective) for your target population. Your objectives must be specific, measureable, achievable, realistic, and time-phased (SMART). Make sure that you have read the required readings on SMART objectives before developing your goal and objectives.
Based on your literature search, provide a summary of evidence-based strategies that have been shown effective in promoting or reducing the behavior in your target population.
Identify two evidence-based strategies that you will use to implement your program or intervention. Provide an explanation why you have chosen these strategies and defend your choices.
For now, include a workplan table with your goals, objectives, and activities/strategies. NOTE: Other parts of the workplan such as the data measurement tools, timeframe, responsible person, and measures of success will be completed in the next module SLP

review the required readings about developing good goal and SMART objectives. Your goal should be something that we can measure as well.
The assignment ask that you provide at least two SMART objectives (learning and behavioral) specific to your target population. Your objectives should be specific measureable, achievable, realistic, and time-phased.
Learning objective should respond to what would you want your participants to learn from the program that you are implementing? For example: At the end of the educational program, 100% of participants will be able to name at least two negative consequences of teen pregnancy as to be measured by a program evaluation.
Behavioral objective should respond to what behavior you want your participants to increase or decrease? For example: At the end 6-month period, 80% of participants will self-report having used contraception when engaging in sexual activities
