So....WHAT do we cover in 9th grade health? We cover three units in this class! 1. Wellness. This unit has 6 "mini-units" embedded in each aspect of wellness. The mini-units are inspired by the students and current health concerns and trends. 2. Reducing the Risk - This is a program aimed at teaching students healthy communication, refusal skills and risk reduction strategies to avoid STDs and pregnancy. 3. School-based "Hands-On" CPR - This is a new program aimed to meet the CT guidelines to ensure all students are exposed to this life-saving skill.
