Students entering grades 9 – 12 July 3 – July 21 (3 weeks) – no class on July 4th 9:00-9:45 am, 10:00-10:45 am Asynchronous work for completion daily due by 5:00 pm (or dependent on tasks)
This 3-week course is targeted toward students who would like to earn their upper/high school health credit over the summer in a remote capacity. This course addresses current and lifetime issues such as stress management, nutritional highlights and our relationships with food, healthy decision-making, mental illnesses, 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 with a heavy focus on discussion-based participation. During the regular school year, this is the Hawken health class for 9th graders. Taking this course will enable students to have two blocks free for study 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.
Note: A key element of this course involves independent use of technology with daily credit given to students who are physically on-screen and engaged. Due to the compressed nature of this course, partnered activities, and focus on live, virtual engagement, students should not register for a session during which they anticipate a planned absence.
