ED 570 - Healthy Children and Classroom Communities

2 credits
This course is built around the belief that building a classroom community promotes social and academic growth, and personal and community health. Through study, collaborative learning, and reflection, students will explore how safe, caring and respectful environments, student rights and responsibilities, cooperation, collaboration, choice, self-assessment and home-school communication impact the classroom community. Students will also examine legal and practical issues pertaining to children and family health, including alcohol and substance abuse, communicable diseases, physical fitness and P.E., nutrition, and the connection between student health and learning.
