Your response will be evaluated on the basis of: a) how well you demonstrate an understanding of and engagement with the course material; b) the clarity and quality of your writing; c) your overall effort on the assignment. Remember that quality of writing is valued over quantity. The assignment will be graded on a scale of 0-10 points, and the grader’s comments and grade should be available to you within one week of the original posting date.
The weekly assignments correspond with the assigned readings and lecture material from the last two weeks. The questions posed in each option are designed to help guide your thinking and response. You are not required to respond to all (or even any) of the listed questions, although your responses should be organized in some way. As with any writing assignment, providing sufficient background information to your topic and offering specific examples to support your views will make your ideas clearer and more convincing.
You are welcome to write beyond the minimum page requirement for the assignment.
In a 2-page response, write out your plan for staying healthy at the university. As options, you may want to consider your physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological and sexual health. How well do you manage these aspects of your health now? How will you continue to manage your health in conjunction with your studies, work, social life and other things that eat up your time and attention? Do you have any specific health targets you’d like to achieve? How do you plan to meet your goals, and what campus resources can you use to help you in this process? You need not address all of these questions in your response, they are offered as a means to help you start thinking about this topic.
