TELECOURSE Guide Richards, Donna B., Telecourse Guide for Journey to Health: Mind~Body~Spirit. Wadsworth Thomson Learning, 2003. ISBN: 0-534-58301-6.


New description: This course provides the student with a general overview of the basic dimensions of health (such as, physical, social and emotional) and the applications of these dimensions to personal wellness. At the conclusion of this course the student should be able to identify the factors which positively and negatively affect the dimensions of health, describe the major health risks and diseases affecting contemporary society and explain the principal ways to promote health through lifestyle and behavioral changes.


All meeting will be in Lexington Public library/Central, in Conference Rooom C (on the fourth floor of the central Library). Your grade will be based on 3 examinations and short written assignments for each lesson based largely on the study guide. Each examination is worth 100 points as are the composite of the written assignments. The examinations will be objective in nature (e.g., multiple choice, fill-in-the-blanks). The questions on the examinations will be from the television broadcasts and from assigned material in the textbook. The relative distribution between TV and assigned material will vary depending on the nature of the material (much of the material is overlapping) but, in general, more of the questions will come from the assigned reading material.

You will be required to turn in written assignments from the lesson learning objectives (see below for the specific assignments). The written material will be submitted by e-mail, corrected, graded and returned to you by e-mail. If you do not have e-mail I will make arrangements for pick-up and return of the written assignments. Written assignments 1-8 must be submitted before examination 1, written assignments 9-16 must be submitted before examination 2, and written assignments 17-25 must be submitted before examination 3. When watching TV, take detailed notes just as you would for live lectures. Remember, exams in this course will be as difficult as those in regular campus courses and you are expected to know the material in as great a detail. Make sure to read the accompanying handout. It gives details about the lessons, viewing hours, the texts and the Learning Center. Cassettes and video machines are available at the Learning center located in the Young Library. If you miss a TV broadcast, you can watch the program(s) at the Learning center.


The final grade will be based on the average of the three test grades and the written assignment grade (100 points each).

Grades are based on a 10 point scale (90-100 = A; 80-90 = B; 70-80 = C; 60-70 = D; below 59 = E. There will be no + or - grading in this course. Individuals that miss an exam will be given a zero unless they have an official excuse. Individuals who will miss an exam because of an official school function (members of the band debate team, religious holiday etc) should contact me at the beginning of the summer session or well in advance of the exam date in order to schedule a make-up exam. Those missing an exam because of illness should contact me immediately after the exam date to schedule a make up.
