Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
You will complete 15 behavior change worksheets and a journal. Begin this project before Week 5 of class, and continue tracking your progress and journaling for a minimum of two weeks. The journal must consist of a few sentences each day to document your progress. Your journal entries should be about your selected behavior (i.e. smoking, sedentary lifestyle, etc..) and your steps to change it. Limit your journal entries to a few sentences per day. Please type your journal in a single word document and express your thoughts and feelings specifically about your progress in making your behavior change. Your journal should resemble a diary, not a calendar, etc.
1.) Go to www.mhhe.com/inselbrief9e or check the doc sharing Wellness Project folder where I have uploaded all 15 worksheet activities. If you choose to download the worksheets from the doc sharing, please save them an upload your work in the Wellness Project dropbox.
2.) Click on "Student Edition".
3.) Select Chapter 1.
4.) Click on "Behavior Change Workbook".
5.) Complete all 15 worksheets (Part 1 and Part 2). Begin with worksheet 1 by listing five behaviors that are negatively impacting your wellness (worksheet 1). Begin journaling after completing worksheet 1. Your journal should consist of your thoughts about your progress changing your target behavior. Your journal should be typed in a Word document. (Your journal should NOT be a calendar of what you ate and drank - this will not count as a journal.)
6.) Please add your journal entries through the eCompanion system under the Journal Tab. Failure to submit a journal will result in a 100 point deduction from your project grade.
