During the wellness project, you will also be utilizing the journaling feature of eCompanion to document your progress.
Discussion threads: Post an initial response to the question by Wednesday at midnight, and discuss/comment on two other classmates' initial postings by Saturday at midnight. You must actively post at least two different days during the week to earn all points.

Late Submission of Course Materials: Late work will not be accepted. All assignments must be turned in on time, and no make up quizzes will be given.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: You are expected to be present at the time class is scheduled to begin. Please turn your phone to silent while in the
classroom. Be courteous to your
classmates and respect a quiet learning environment. Texting during class is not allowed and will result in the loss of participation points for that class session. Any cheating will result in a failing grade for the assignment at a minimum, and possible automatic failure of the student for the class.
If you must eat during class, please make sure that it is done quietly
so that it does not disturb others. Drinks are always welcome.
Because this course is concerned with your long term health, there are two long term projects built into the course. The Nutrition project involves the use of the Fitday 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.
