Elijah's Transcript ~ Health

Elijah completed 144 hours of Health class. His grade for this course was an A. Below is a list of resources that he used for his curriculum.

TED-Ed Lessons ~ Elijah watched 15 TED-Ed Health videos on nutrition, mental health and anatomy. He completed the lessons and discussion questions for each lesson.

Doctor Appointments ~ Elijah attended five doctor appointments during this credit. With each appointment, he made notes before the appointment with any questions that he had for the doctor. He then asked the questions and learned how to advocate for himself. If it was an appointment that I did not attend, he reported back to me how it went.

Choices Scholastic Magazine   ~ Elijah read and completed all of the lessons and quizzes in six Choices Scholastic magazines. He learned about a variety of topics. Here are just a few of the topics he covered.

  • Dieting and health
  • Sleep and its importance to teens
  • Social media bullying
  • Depression in teens
  • Healthy snacking
  • Relationships and dating
  • School safety
Helping the Homeless ~ He helped make many hygiene kits throughout the course and distributed kits whenever he saw someone in need.

DMV Online Course ~ Elijah completed close to half of this course before needing to withdraw due to his grandfather's illness and death in a different state. He had an 87% for the first half of the course. He decided that he didn't want to learn how to drive at this time. 

Better Me board game ~ Elijah played this game with his psychotherapist seven times. The game always led to great discussions.

Daily Health and Hygiene by Sarah Joubert  ~ Elijah completed this workbook with 100% accuracy.

The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook by Joshua Piven ~ Elijah read this entire book.

DK First Aid Manual ~ Elijah concentrated on treating burns and cuts.

Unit Studies ~ The following unit studies were based off of Elijah's interest and concerns. We read about each issue and often followed up with a video. We also had long discussions on each topic. The very last topic was my choice. I felt that he needed a basic understanding of human reproductive anatomy.
  • HIV and AIDS
  • Death and grieving
  • Drug usage, both illegal and prescription
  • Cold weather survival
  • Male and female anatomy
Movies and Shows ~
  • Super Size Me
  • Rotten ~ He watched the entire television series on Netflix. It focused on problems in the process of supplying food. 

Blessings, Dawn
