Health Education

HEALTH                                                                          1 CREDIT   Health is a required course for ninth graders.  The Health Education course at Belmont High School addresses the physical, mental and social dimensions of health.  The course is designed to motivate and assist students to maintain and improve their health, prevent disease and reduce health-related risk behaviors.  The goal of this course is to develop “health-literate” citizens. They will be encouraged to look closely at their own lifestyles, to learn the skills necessary for changing negative behaviors, and to set goals for improving their well-being.

FOOD AND NUTRITION                                                      1 CREDIT  Prerequisite:  Successful completion of Health.

Students will learn the relationship of food to good health and changing lifestyles.  The importance of food safety and sanitation in the kitchen, basic measuring skills, reading and understanding a recipe, and “how-to” techniques are practiced as the students prepare a variety of foods using the major food groups in relationship to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
