Welcome to our Writing and Health class for the 2010-2011 school year. The scope of our class will use Writing Across the Curriculum working through the Physical Education Department to broaden and hone our students’ communication skills.
        In Health and Science we will focus on the California State standards; copies of these standards can be found in the Forms and Docs selection in the left hand column. Complete California standards for all subjects can be found in the Useful Links selection in the left-hand column; click on the California Department of Education link. We will learn Writing and Health during the first and second quarters, and Writing and Science during the third and fourth quarters.


        Assignments for all these classes will be posted weekly in the Homework Assignments selection in the left-hand column and will include copies of any handouts and rubrics. Students will also receive a printed copy of each week’s assignments and materials.
