WELLNESS HEALTH ARTICLE ASSIGNMENT
The purpose of an article assignment is to identify additional information or trends related to class topics. The goal of the article assignments is to further enhance understanding of the topics and to provide opportunities for students to share the researched information with their classmates.
The first step of the assignment is to locate an article related to Health on the internet. Each week you will be given a “specific” topic or a “general” topic to research. Specific topics will include: self-esteem, stress, anxiety disorders, nutrition and alcohol/drugs. General health topics may be offered and refer to any topic related to health. General topics provide you with a wider range of topics to research. After locating an appropriate article, you will bring the article to class. On a separate sheet of paper, you will need to include the following information:
Name and class period
Title of the article
Summary of the article
Opinion/reaction to the information presented in the article.
COPY OF ARTICLE MUST BE INCLUDED OR NO CREDIT WILL BE GIVEN
Students may be requested to present their article to their classmates. Failure to present or disrupting a classmate’s presentation will result in a 25 point deduction.
Articles are due on the announced due dates. No article will be accepted past the due date without penalty unless you are absent from school. If you are absent, it is expected to be turned in the next day you are back in class. Articles will be TYPED and PRINTED prior to class and NO EMAILS will be accepted. Articles which are one class day late will receive half credit. Articles two days late will be scored a zero.
