What do you like most about your Carone Learning course?

Overall, my favorite thing about my Carone Learning course is the way that each unit is structured.  There are lessons, discussion posts, reflections, and creative assignments.  Each of these aspects fully prepares me for the quizzes and tests.  Also, I love how I am engaged in each of these activities, and I find myself looking forward to each new unit.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life?

Currently, I am taking the Nutrition course, and I am amazed by how much I am learning about the affect our nutrition can have on our bodies.  One’s diet arguably has the most impact on one’s health, and it is very important that I learn good nutritional skills at my current age.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness?

My Carone course has taught me lots of important information about food groups, vitamins, minerals, exercise and more.  With the knowledge I have gained, I feel like I can create more nutritious meals and maximize the benefits of my food.

I signed up for a course through cFitness Academy because my school did not offer that many good choices for PE credits, and they weren’t flexible with my schedule either.  By taking the class online, I can focus on it when I have the time to dedicate to it.

Why Online PE?

High school students these days are often turning to online lWhy Online PE?earning to help them get the credit they need for graduation. Online math, science, and language arts are now considered mainstream, but what about PE? Is there a need for online PE? Why are students turning to an online physical education solution?

Three Reasons Why Students Take Online PE

1. Need for a flexible schedule.
One of the most common reasons students take an online course is the need for a flexible schedule. Oftentimes students want to take additional elective courses during the school day—foreign language, band, choir, drama, wood shop—there’s too many good options! Taking online PE or health classes frees up a period so students can take an additional class of their choice.

Additionally, students want the flexibility to take the course how, when, and where they want. Online learning provides that anytime, anywhere flexibility. We often work with students who have limited schedules because they are training for the Olympics, traveling concert pianists, or focusing early on a career. However, this need for flexibility is also seen as a major factor for almost every student we have—whether they are a premiere athlete or a struggling teen. Online learning provides the freedom for students to work on classes at their own pace and however they see fit.

2. Don’t want to exercise at school.
There’s a variety of reasons a student may not want to attend gym class at school. For one thing, the locker room scene can be an uncomfortable situation. Plus, having to change your clothes, shower, and redo your make up or hair in a matter of minutes is less than ideal. Getting hot and sweaty in the middle of the school day is not generally something to look forward to. So many students opt to keep their clothes on during school and take an online PE class where they can choose to exercise at a time that is more convenient to them.

3. Setting the stage for life long fitness.
Although there are certainly some great in-school physical education programs out there, more often than not, they focus on playing group sports and learning the rules of the game. Yes, these are great skills to have, but how well do they set a student up for life long fitness? What are the life management and personal fitness skills a student needs to have to help them be healthy and fit for the rest of their lives? Because of the personal nature of online learning, a virtual environment is actually an ideal setting for learning about personal health and fitness. Students learn principles about health and fitness and practice applying those principles to their own lives and workouts.

Although online learning may not be for everyone, there’s a variety of reasons an online PE course is the perfect fit for many students. Carone Learning is the premiere provider of online PE and health courses. Learn more today!

Meet Shaylee S.! Carone Learning’s Student of the Week!

I like the fact I can work at my pace so to speak. As long as your ahead you can do as much as you can and with my schedule right now it helps out a lot.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life?

I have learned how to deal with a lot of situations I have never personally faced before. Reading some of the situations and responses has helped me see how I should deal with the situation if it ever comes up.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness?

It has helped me realizes a lot of things that can be very harmful to you. It makes me see that there are changes I need to make to my everyday life and activity to make myself a healthier person.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals?

She has been very helpful. She was patient with me when I was unable to get stated, when I had questions, and when I was behind she gave me the time to get it caught up.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial?

I didn’t sign up for this class. I started this year on home bound due to a car accident and I was put into this class. Although I was worried about the class it has been very educational and taught me many things about my health and the health of others.

 

Here’s what Shaylee’s teacher had to say about her: 

“She works hard to do high quality work and stay ahead of the pacing guide, even when she was very behind early on. Her Reflection Journal entries are particularly interesting and inspirational. Shaylee has also been great at communicating with me throughout the semester letting me know if she’s struggling or has questions, which is helpful to me as an instructor, especially an online one.”

In Shaylee’s Drugs and Alcohol course there is a lesson on refusal skills to help students know when to say, “No!” as well as practice saying, “No!” Here is Shaylee’s reflection and experiences using refusal skills.   

4.1 Reflection: Learning refusal skills is very important so you can feel confident when refusing drugs or alcohol when offered. Although you may not have had to refuse these things, what are other situations you have had to use refusal skills to make a better choice. (i.e. invitation to a party, skipping school, etc.) Explain your experience.

Response: I had a friend of mine ask me to smoke pot. Another one asked me to skip school and go drinking with a bunch of my friends. I told them both no, I wasn’t going to do it. One of them actually laughed and called me chicken. It really bothered me but instead of letting them see that it was making me mad, I just decided to laugh at him and tell him he was the one that was being stupid. Going out drinking and driving was one of the dumbest things he could do. After we both tried to make the other feel guilty, I walked away. A few minutes later he found me and said the he thought about what I had said and decided he would stay with me. I felt good to know that I kept a friend from going out and doing something extremely stupid.

Just as all of our students are unique, we think Shaylee is pretty great and we’re proud to have her in class! Thanks, Shaylee!

In Jordan’s Life Skills health class she has been exploring her own identity– Jordan talks about her family heritage and what traditions her family has. 

Step I: Identify Your Family Heritage In one complete paragraph, tell about your family heritage. What is your ethnic or cultural background? What traditions does your family have? What things are most important to your family?

The most famous saying in my family is “treat others how you would want to be treated”. We value simple things such as kindness. We believe in being good people who genuinely care about others and their hardships. We believe in being God’s people and doing the right thing. We have the normal traditions such as being with family on special holidays such as Christmas. We open the gifts Christmas Eve and simply enjoy each other’s presence Christmas day. We try our best to attend church every Sunday. We also have some unique traditions such as eating ribs for Thanksgiving instead of the typical turkey. I believe my family originally came from Whales. I am not quite sure, but I know the majority of my family is Christian or Catholic.
