• Welcome to my class website

    This semester, I will be teaching one FIT ONE class, a FIT TWO class, and one Personal Strategic Planning ('PSP') class.

    Your student's grades will be available on the PowerSchool app.

    I may best be reached via email:  curibe@fcusd.org

    Welcome back!

     

    FIT ONE, BLOCK ONE:

    *Basic Freshman Physical Education.

    **We'll be concentrating on DAILY movement, starting out with 15 minutes per session, and moving up to 45 minutes, per session -Tuesdays through Fridays.

    ***Monday's classes shall be devoted to light movement activities (ten minutes of calisthenics), and the presentation of the upcoming week's learning and performance expectations.

    ***Movement includes, our warmup (static and dynamic, to be conducted in front of the student's activated computer camera), calisthenics (examples of which have been posted on the class Google Classroom page), and a cardio-vascular exercise activity (i.e., a run, a ruck [backpack] hike, a bicycle ride, etc.) and/or strength-building activities (i.e., light weightlifting movements with a loaded backpack -loaded with bags of dry beans and/or rice, as these products tend to be packaged more substantially than sugar or flour).

    **There will be reflective essays upon nutrition-related videos.

    **There will be student-driven projects (the grading rubrics shall be posted on the class Google Classroom site) which shall be filmed and linked to the student's reflective essays on the project.

    *Each student is expected to fully participate in this semester's FIT ONE class, by activating their computer's camera, no later than Monday, 24 August 2020.

     

    FIT TWO, BLOCK THREE

    The FIT TWO curriculum shall incorporate movement as one of the hallmarks of the class.

    *We shall work up to at least 45 minutes of activity, per session Tuesdays through Fridays.

    **Activity shall be in the form of a warm up activity (static and dynamic), calisthenics (the standards of which have been posted to the class Google Classroom page).

    ***These portions of the instructional block shall be performed with the student's computer camera activated.

    ****Activation of the student's computer camera shall be mandatory, beginning with Monday, 24 August 2020****

    **Mondays shall incorporate at least ten minutes of physical activity (i.e., calisthenics), with the remaining portion of the instructional block devoted to the presentation of the upcoming week's performance and learning expectations.

    *Each of the students is expected to engage in a cardo-vascular building activity (i.e., running, ruck walk, bicycling, etc.) and/or a strength-building activity (backpack lifing activities, with the backpack loaded with bags of rice/dry beans -rice/dry beans tend to be more substantially packaged than flour, sugar, etc.).

    **There will be student-driven projects (the grading rubrics shall be posted on the class Google Classroom site) which shall be filmed and linked to the student's reflective essays on the project.

    PERSONAL STRATEGIC PLANNING  BLOCK FOUR

    Personal Strategic Planning (PSP) shall expose the student to a variety of assessment tools as well as books, articles, and research papers, all with the endeavor to show the student how to effectively research and choose the best methods to make the most of their high school years and beyond.

    *How to pick a college major which best suits them, at this time of their life.

    *How to pick from a variety of vocational opportunities, based upon the U.S. Dept. of Labor careers inventory.

    *Coping with stress and continuing to move toward success, by way of several articles, speeches, books, etc.

    The students shall be assessed by way of a series of reflective essays, as well as two research projects, culminating in the writing and presentation of a semester research project.

    Students shall be expected to fully participate in this class, by way of completing the day's reading, prior to class, and engaging in a class discussion/debate upon the main points of that day's reading/survey/etc.

    *The links to each day's reading/survey shall be posted on the class Google Classroom page.
