This 3-week course is targeted toward students who would like to earn their upper/high school health credit over the summer. The class addresses current and lifetime issues such as stress management, nutrition, healthy decision-making, mental health, human sexuality, drug use and abuse, and other contemporary health topics. The course will involve both synchronous (in-person) and asynchronous (at-home) learning with the teacher as well as group/partner work and has a heavy focus on discussion-based participation. During the regular school year, this is the Hawken health class for freshmen. Health is a required Hawken graduation requirement and may be taken during summer, even by incoming Hawken freshmen. Taking this course will enable 9th grade students to have a free block in place of health class during one semester of the regular school year. Non-Hawken students need to check with their school to determine if the class will be accepted for credit. Attendance Note: Due to the compressed nature of this course and focus on in-person participation, students should not register for a session during which they anticipate a planned absence; they should instead simply take it during the school year.
