Course Name: Health and Nutrition for HS for Grades 9-12
Grade Range: 9-12
Instructor: Nancy Pierce
Price: $185 for 28 weeks
Course Description: Health and Nutrition is an evidence-based class in which we will look at the facts and misconceptions around food and diet. We will bust diet myths and challenge the idea that there’s a definite list of good and harmful foods for optimal health and performance.
We’ll discuss about health issues and their relation to nutrition, debate on different, often controversial, ideas about food and nutrients, and consider evidence to draw our conclusions. Most importantly, we'll give you the opportunity to reflect on your own knowledge and assumptions around the subject.
Course Prerequisites: none
Curriculum used by Instructor: self-developed
Books & Supplies required for purchase by families: none
Homework Requirements: Each session I will give students 2-3 questions to research during the week and prepare and short report with their findings. Along with these I will send them a couple of articles to read. The objective of these assignments is to prepare students to actively engage in class discussions.
Students will also have two projects (one per semester). These will require a brief written report and a presentation in class.
Duration: 28 weeks
Grading: letter grades
