Planning to Thrive
How can we set and achieve personal goals that help us thrive?
In this project, students reflect on their current health and develop personal health goals. They craft “Healthy Mind and Body” action plans and put the plans into practice, tracking their progress and documenting their reflections in a journal. Simultaneously, students work on teams to develop and support an action plan for a real or fictional client. Students consolidate their learning into a class-produced print or digital guide with best practices and lessons learned for setting and achieving personal health goals. Students present their action plans to clients (or if working with fictional clients, present action plans to an audience of peers or community members). The class publishes the best practices guide online and distributes it at a community health fair.
