January 11, 2018 - This is the 4th of the 9 main pages devoted to PCH 201 Wellness. This page contains all the grids and templates you have to use for the writing assignments.

Also included are tables of links to the worksheets you will be completing as homework assignments. For those who want to get a head start - the links to the worksheets are accessible now! There are two versions for each worksheet, but you only need to complete one version.

If you decide to do the "Manual - Print, then Complete" version, you can just print all of them out now and work on them when you have time. Once you print them out, make sure you staple each worksheet with multiple pages together. Put the due date on them (Column 3) and you are ahead of the game!

Some are self-assessments and some require the textbook to complete. The first 4 do not require a textbook, so you can complete these before school starts! Because they require you to score your choices, make sure you include the totals at the end of the worksheet. Then, just hand them in on the due dates!

There are 4 major assignments for the class: Fact sheet paper, individual presentation & portfolio project, health diary and a health literacy project paper. The Writing Assignments Handbook includes the instructions for all the assignments. The templates contain the skeletal structure to use for your papers. I have provided examples from previous semesters for ALL assignments. The templates will be available the first week of class. And, I will go over everything during the first few classes.

The study guides (found after the Worksheet section) are in Power Point slide format. Print these out and bring to class for note-taking and annotating. Use your notes to study for exams. I will be providing you with the study guides for Chapters 1 and 2.

If you are not a student in my class, I would appreciate that you not take any of these files or link to these files without contacting me first. If you would like to link to these files as examples of writing guides, templates, etc., then I would really appreciate a citation. Without asking for my permission you are basically stealing, which reflects poor judgment and unethical behavior. Do the right thing and respect the scholarly contributions of others. Thank you.

There is a total of 12 worksheets, for a total of 56 points. They are due throughout the semester, and to be handed in on the due date (noted in Column 1). But, you can hand these in early to avoid late penalties.

Complete each one in its entirely to earn the maximum points assigned to each worksheet. For scoring worksheets always include the numeric total.

If an Internet Activity is listed, you must do the activity to earn full credit. If a worksheet is longer than one page, make sure you staple them together to avoid a .25 penalty.


Note: Here are the Power Point slides I will be using during my lectures. The bulk of what I will be covering are on these slides so you don't have to take notes on everything. HOWEVER, (major hint) I have left spaces for you to take notes on things you will need to know. The BEST TIME TO TAKE NOTES is when you are reading the chapter BEFORE the lecture. The study guide will help you to focus on the important points of each chapter that you need to know (hint).

Personalize these study guides with the notes you take while you are reading and make annotations during the lecture given in class. These steps will make studying for exams easier by not having to cram last minute. You will be learning the material as you read, taking notes using the study guides and then adding additional information you learn during lecture which will help you clarify what it is you need to know. This way you can pay attention in class to what is being said and ask questions for clarification and discussion. By studying this way you will have gone over the material 4 times (reading, taking notes while reading, listening to the lecture and annotating the study guide during the lecture) before the exams. Research have show that taking notes by hand is the best way to learn.

If you miss a lecture, get notes from your class buddies. However, as mentioned in the previous paragraphs you can fill in the blanks of the study guide by reading the chapter. You can also see me after class if you want to look at the slides again during office hours, or ask for additional explanations of concepts you don't understand.

Chapters not included here are those for which individual presentations will be covering. Everyone will be providing a Power Point of their presentation, which will be posted on the Students Presentations Page.
