This unit will be integrated directly through language arts and technology to meet CT Health and Science Standards such as: 1) Students will demonstrate the ability to use decision-making skills to enhance health. 2) Students will demonstrate the ability to advocate for personal, family and community health. 3) Students are provided with multiple opportunities to experience inquiry investigations that develop students' abilities to question, explore, observe, gather simple data, draw conclusions based on the data and build their understanding of natural phenomena. Additionally, this unit is aligned with New Haven Pubic Schools goals for students which say "What students learn in school must be relevant to the world in which they live. The learning that takes place in schools is not only academic, but also social and personal. It is profound and must be relevant to the world in which they live." This unit will therefore prepare me to better integrate subjects to fully develop one topic as well as help me to give students a "greater purpose" for learning about how and why it's important to keep the brain healthy because it directly affects their lives.
