Class debates and group discussions will synthesize a student's understanding of class notes, articles, short films, and documentaries. After reading controversial or conflicting articles, students should have the opportunity to talk through the concepts of diet and fitness that most affect their own lives.
Explicit vocabulary exercises will test each student's memory and high-order engagement with the human anatomy and common nutritional needs. Students who master the specific vocabulary of each mini-unit should produce more persuasive arguments and written work. Students who grasp the material and develop a passion for nutrition and exercise can become community and school advocates through volunteer work or the formation of a health, fitness, or well-being club.
