COURSE DESCRIPTION: Philosophy of Wellness that Enriches Relationships (POWER) focuses on ‘real life’ problems. The student studies, analyzes, interprets, and evaluates universal topics. Components range from self-concept, self-analysis (Myers- Briggs), nutrition, brain research, multiple intelligence theory, learning styles, technology, mental, spiritual, physical, and sexual issues. The themes woven throughout the course balance independent learning, interest development, communication, critical thinking, ethical reasoning, leadership, interpersonal skills, creativity, and problems solving. Based on his/her research, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation each student begins to develop his/her own philosophy for life. Special topics include, but are not limited to exercise, nutrition, and food choices; weight control, and the consequences of obesity; sexuality (pregnancy and sexually-transmitted diseases); and addiction, addictive substances, and addictive behavior. The small class size supports discussion, creativity, and higher level thinking skills. This course seeks to promote positive relationships, accurate interpretation of alternative points of view, and the refinement of personal life management skills. Areas of focus are health promotion, behaviors, factors, and advocacy; career readiness; communication/expression; art; and math and science as inquiry with emphasis on problem solving, critical/creative thinking, and cooperation (teamwork). Literacy strategies are integrated throughout the course. The course is designed to meet the needs of the academically talented student, the student that needs organizational skills, the student leader, and the student needing to improve leadership skills. This class promotes student initiative, student interest development, and student communication.
