Healthy Pathways to Authentic Learning

Author: Carole Snider EDT6945



This course will offer a vital avenue for student success and that is total student health. The Common Core State Standards demand deeper teaching so all students are college or career ready upon graduation. This requires a healthy mind and body coupled with mental wellness. Many schools today have reduced physical education and health classes to a bare minimum; coupled with increased school stress, and a lack of basic executive function skills, a student’s ability to meet the rigorous demands are greatly diminished. Educators will learn classroom implementation methods to promote the essential healthy mind, body, and spirit required to meet the rigorous demands placed upon students today. This course is based on the latest research demonstrating that total student health will enhance and promote student achievement.  Of course, educators themselves can also benefit from the research and its personal/professional application from this course.

A few of the many things participants will learn include:
The negative effects of being a fast food nation
A food plan to promote learning
How to teach basic nutrition to students
The importance of hydration to facilitate cognition
The lifelong benefits of being physically fit
How exercise makes the learning process more efficient
The importance of executive function skills for learning

The physical reactions to stress
Identification of the silent school stressors for students
