“This is how kids are learning now,” said health teacher Lisa Irsfeld. “The Internet is a big part of their world.” The health course is set up so that students meet twice a week at the school with the rest of the course work done online. Teachers realized that in order for students to retain information from the class, there needed to be class meetings with frequent assignments. On a recent morning, students met in groups to discuss ways to be more healthy. Students then gave presentations to their peers on health issues before the teacher gave a short lecture. Web assignments include reading passages before answering questions or using a body mass index calculator to determine how many calories they burned in a week. Students also must post a journal of their physical activities and eating habits online for teachers to review.
