Healthy Behaviors and Wellness Discussion
1.You’ve been invited to lead a brief presentation for a group of seniors in high school who are preparing to start college to introduce ideas and strategies that will help them succeed in their degree path.
Begin outlining your presentation by defining “wellness.” (30 points)
Define the abstract concept of “wellness” as it has been explored in this course using your own words. (10 pts)
In this course, we differentiated wellness from health (the absence of disease) and fitness (one’s readiness or adaptability for a specific task). Explain the relationships between these concepts of health, fitness, and wellness. (10 pts)
Reflect on the course, specifically the morbidity and mortality information, and brainstorm (in 3-5 sentences) what the phrase “lifetime wellness” means in the context of all that you’ve learned and how you would communicate that to the group. (10 pts)
Using what you’ve learned from our course content and your Reflections, first explain the concept of metacognition in your own words. (10 pts)
Provide a specific, relevant example to demonstrate a metacognitive strategy that high school seniors or college freshmen would find relatable and useful. (10 pts)
Describe how using metacognitive strategies to be a self-directed learner can help them take control of their studies and succeed in their career and personal goals (10 pts).
Review our course content, then identify and list at least 3 additional topics from this class that you would share with this group of high school students to help prepare them to manage their well-being in college and beyond. (5 pts)
For each topic you chose, list at least one specific piece of information from our class that you think they should know. (5 pts)
In a few sentences, demonstrate your understanding of how the topics and information you selected to share relate to your earlier explanation of the idea of “lifetime wellness.” (10 pts)
We began our term by learning about the concept of metacognition, or thinking about thinking, and the abstract concept of “wellness.” We explored ideas around the built environment, logical thinking, emotional intelligence, media literacy, and pseudo information.
In our second third, we looked at practical behaviors related to the wellness dimensions, and gained a working understanding of the systems of the human body that govern and are affected by these behaviors.
Most recently, we explored the idea of nutrition, both from the physiological perspective of one’s own body and how society can affect our ability to meet our nutritional needs and live a full, healthy life.
What connections can you draw between all these ideas and other concepts, practices, and ideas explored during our course?
What was most useful to you? What will you remember in a few months, years, or decades?
What would you want to say to your classmates who you’ve gotten to know over the last few weeks?
How do you feel now that you are essentially finished with this course?
