Description of Course: 

 During this course we will cover aspects of Physical Fitness and Healthy living lifestyle choices.  Being active and moving is the primary focus in class through a variety of activities such as team sports, individual sports, and strength training.

 

Course Overview :

  • Every student is expected to take an active role in the education process in this classroom.  That includes participation in class discussion and group activities, also completing all assignment and projects.  Students are expected to study for assessments and practice to achieve mastery. 
  • Classroom learning will take place through many avenues, including class lecture, group projects, hand on activities including labs, and individual work. 

Class Policies:

Your grade for this course will consist of the following:

  1.  Final Exam (20%).  Your final exam will consist of multiple choice questions and 1 essay question. 
  2. Learning Objectives (70%).  Learning objectives will be assessed during summative assessments (test) over each unit.  Each learning objective is worth 3 points.  If student masters the objective, they receive a 3.  Partial mastery is worth 2, and non-mastery receives 1 point.  Students may retake an assessment of a learning objective to increase their mastery score.  However, all assignments for that unit must be completed before a student may retake a learning objective assessment.  Retakes of learning objective assessments must be scheduled for before or after school. 
  3. Assignments (10%).  All assignment for a unit must be completed before a student is eligible to retake learning objectives assessments.  Assignments vary by point value.  Assignments will be accepted late but full credit will not be received for late assignments. 

Absences:

The student may also request written work from teacher to be taken home for make-up work as well. 

Class Procedures:

  • Leaving class:  you are only allowed to leave class due to an emergency.  Do not ask for any other reason.  You have plenty of time between classes, use your time wisely.   If granted permission, you need to take the hall pass next to the door. 
  • Turning in assignments:  Turn assignments into the appropriate tray in the front of the room. 
  • In case of emergency, please refer to the door at the front of the room for directions.
