Health Course Syllabus
For the 9 weeks, we will be covering a variety of health topics each week and also Journaling through our wellness journey. I follow the North Carolina Standards. You may visit the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction for more information. (see links below)
Topics (based off of the NC Health Education Standards) include:
8th Grade ONLY
8th grade students will participate in Health and Life Skills lessons and courses. 8th grade will also perform Hands-Only CPR with our practice mannequins, as well as take a test to potentially receive their Intro to CPR and First Aid Course certificate.
We will be learning about the listed NC health standards topics by participating in a variety of fun activities, daily journaling, group/partnered projects and activities, class discussions, and assessments. Class assignments will consist of google classroom posted assignments, open discussion, and or worksheets.
Students will be graded on a point system. Students will earn points for each journal entry, activity, and assignment they complete. For this course students will receive a Pass/Fail grade. Students have the potential to earn 50 points a week. Journal entries are 25 points and class assignments/ participation is 25 points.
Students may lose points for off task work ethic, incomplete assignments, and behavior occurrences.
We will be covering a variety of health topics that are serious and important. It is important to be respectful of others, the instructor, and most certainly yourself. Below you will find the Health class classroom expectations and procedure.
Health Class behavior expectations
1st occurrence – Seating will be changed if needed

Note: The order of consequences for unacceptable behavior is subject to change based on the incident/behavior.
Student success is key and my primary goal. I will diligently work with students to ensure they receive the best academic experience. While having some fun learning about health.
