Course Description: Welcome to Health! This semester-long, 0.5 credit course, is designed to enhance your knowledge of health issues and topics. We will cover many areas associated with the importance and ability to live a long, healthy life. Throughout this semester our objectives are we will have multiple projects, assignments, and assessments that will be geared toward helping us understand and prove an understanding of the material.
We use the textbook, Comprehensive Health by G-W Publishers, Sanderson, Zelman, Lynch and Munsell and Hands on Health activities by Glencoe Health.

Throughout the year there are different projects and engagement activities that we will be doing. There are a couple of things that I will ask all students to do, some will be required, and others will be optional but strongly encouraged.
In the era of technology and educating 21st Century students, I will try and utilize technology as much as I can during this class to enhance the educational experience. Students please be sure to review the technology use agreement in your student handbook and recognize the importance of appropriate use of technology in the classroom. There will be days where you will be using Chromebooks in class, iPads, or your own personal devices to answer questions and participate in class. While no one will be punished and alternatives will be available for those who do not have access to electronic devices, if a student misuses these devices the proper discipline will take place for the misuse.
Materials Needed: Storage in a Binder
Loose-leaf notebook paper
1 Box Markers or Colored Pencils
1 Box of Kleenex
1-Set of Dry Erase Markers
Grading/Assignments: In Health, we will utilize a total points system for determining your final grade. While assignments have a due date, you must turn in late assignments for credit. Work should be turned in teams first, only hand in hard copies if necessary. I do my best to have PowerSchool updated daily, but if you have questions about assignments, please do not hesitate to contact me. Also, it is highly recommended that you keep assignments and tests when turned back to you in-case there is a question regarding a score or missing assignment. Do not turn in work to a guest teacher! Turn in on teams, or in person.
