HPEG0100: Girl’s Health & PE I

05/01/2023 to 04/30/2024 • Modified 06/08/2023

Course Description

This course can be taken as a year-long or separate semester course to isolate the health or physical education components. The primary aim of the course is to encourage the student to establish a biblical view of the body, health, and self-image. During health instruction, students will investigate the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of topics such as nutrition, overall health, body image, social health, stress, and appropriate use of social media. Students explore the normal functioning of major body systems and the impact of disease on those systems. Through safety and first aid training, the student is exposed to the skills and techniques of CPR and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED.) Physical education (PE) instruction guides students in the safe and appropriate techniques for physical activity, such as stretching, jumping, developing core strength, plyometrics, and other aerobic exercises. Students demonstrate participation by submitting an activity journal and mastery through submitting video recordings of the student’s exercise activities. Male students are assigned to course sections taught by male instructors, and female students are assigned to those taught by female instructors. While HPEG100 is designed for ninth-grade students, the course can be taken by any high-school student.
