Fit for You: A Guide to Wellness
This is the most important class you can take for your sake. Fit for You is designed to help you realize the importance of cardiovascular and muscular fitness, proper diet and sound mental health for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The course will help teachers and administrators gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for maintaining a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle. I believe that people desire to live a healthy lifestyle but lack the basic knowledge to do so. The course assignments will help the student integrate specific national standards for physical education. Objectives for each lesson are modeled around standards-based learning as identified by the National Association for Sports and Physical Education (NASPE). Evidence of learning is tied directly to stated objectives and is assessed via personal fitness plans, student taught lessons using Fit for You and a written fitness evaluation.
This course is applicable towards the Health Education Teaching Certificate.
