We will be using CANVAS in our health class. CANVAS is a online class that allows the students to learn and collaborate online. Students can access CANVAS where ever there they have access to the internet. It is a great tool for growing the students into 21st century learners.

Comic Strip Project

The Comic Strip Project is an assignment in which the students had the opportunity to create a character that illustrates the steps of the decision making model. The character in the comic strip had to consider each step of the model and choosing the best option for the situation. They were able to work with a classmate to complete the assignment. The assignment counts as a performance grade.

Steps of the Decision Making Model

1. State the problem.

2. List the options.

3. Weigh the outcomes of each option.

4. Consider your values and beliefs.

5. Choose the best option.

6. Evaluate the decision.
