Teaching Homeschool Health has been a passion for me for years. I had been a Nutritional Consultant before homeschooling our children, so as our children were in 9th grade, it seemed a natural fit for me to teach this High School Requirement to our children and their friends. For almost ten years now I have been writing a book to use as a text to help in the process of teaching health.
This Fall I plan to offer High School Health to Homeschool families in the Grand Terrace, Corona, Inland Empire, Mira Loma, Riverside, Redlands, Moreno Valley and San Bernardino areas using a draft of my new textbook, Practical Nutrition: Challenging Teens to Excellence, Homeschool Health Textbook.
A big focus in my class has been helping the students to create a new health habit in their lives. After all, we learn 100% of what we do! It has been exciting to watch the transformation as these young people develop habits that improve their health. Whether their new habit is regular exercise or consuming more vegetables, they get to experience the fact that they can choose to make a new habit be a part of their lifestyle with a decision and a little determined effort!
That is where the new assignments for this class will come in. I wanted a program that wasn’t filled with “busywork” but that helps the students dig deep, learn how to research for the information they need and to document this in their own Journal. Assignments will also include Videos from my most popular lectures – as well as lectures created just for this class!
The goal is a program that teaches the truth based on current research – not on what we have all heard growing up or on commercials. The truth about the dangers of all types of drugs; the truth about how our bodies were created to heal themselves and how to provide the nutrients and environment to best allow that to happen. I find that the moms that attend my classes also become huge fans and are grateful for the knowledge as well as the big picture.
