The core assessment for this course is the comprehensive final exam which consists of 89 objective items and 6 essay type written discussion items (Meets 25% of overall course grade). Each week students will take a short quiz. Students are recommended to use these quizzes to prepare for the final exam. They will also submit a binder/notebook at the end of the class. The binder/notebook should include all class activities and notes from class. If a student misses a class, they will need to complete 2 pages (one page front and back) of notes from each of the chapters they missed. Students will be assigned 12 short answer discussion topics. The topics need to have a section in the binder/notebook. The binder/notebook will be used to determine class activity and participation grades. On the second week of class, students should begin to collect data for their nutrition and wellness projects. It is required that students track their eating habits and physical exercise for 2 weeks. Students should refer to class hand outs on the requirements for these projects.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Late materials are never accepted unless there is a special circumstance as evaluated by the instructor. All projects and notebooks are due the last day of class but can be submitted early.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Students are expected to be prompt, prepared, and participate in scholarly classroom discussions. Spelling and grammar will need to be revised when submitting discussion topics. Due to the nature of our discussions, students will be respectful of each other and the topics addressed. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated.
Because this course is concerned with your long term health, there are a couple of long term projects built into the course. The Nutrition project involves the use of the http://www.choosemyplate.gov/ diet analysis program. This project will involve daily recording of foods. The Wellness or physical fitness project extends over a longer period of time. Although the directions are specific about the activities that you participate in, if there are circumstances that prevent you from completing them please contact me and we will work on a different aspect for you.
