HEALTH AND WELLNESS

Health Education

Grade 9 students will be scheduled for one trimester of health. Students will review pertinent health topics which influence the choices they make in the near future. The importance of educated decision making will be highlighted. The hazards of tobacco, drugs and alcohol will be reviewed. Nutrition and obesity will also be studied. The endocrine system, sexuality and childbirth will also be discussed. Abstinence and personal responsibility will be emphasized, and contraception will be reviewed. Open classroom discussion will be promoted, so therefore any health issue may also be briefly discussed. A variety of learning avenues will be utilized, such as reading from the text, class worksheets, homework assignments, projects, videos and slideshows
