This 3-week course is targeted toward students who would like to earn their upper/high school health credit over the summer. During the regular school year, this is the Hawken health class for freshmen. Taking this course will enable students to have a study hall in place of health class during one semester of the regular school year. This course addresses current and lifetime issues such as stress, nutrition, healthy decision-making, mental illness, human sexuality, drug use and abuse, and other contemporary topics. The course will involve both synchronous and asynchronous learning with the teacher as well as group/partner work and has a heavy focus on discussion-based participation. Both Health I and the First Aid/CPR/AED, a required Hawken graduation requirement, may be taken this summer, even by incoming Hawken freshmen. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit. Note: Due to frequent group-project work and the compressed nature of this course, students should not register for a session during which they anticipate a planned absence.
