August 22, 2017 - This is the 9th (and, last) of the 9 pages devoted to PCH 201 Wellness. Congratulations for making it to this page!

This is a very important page as I use it to communicate with you between classes. You should check this page frequently, especially between Thursday and the following Tuesday. This is where I post messages, announcements, grades, etc.

More importantly, this is where I post the weekly reports about what's missing, according to my grade book. If you show up here (by ID number) on these weekly reports, it means I should have gotten something from you and I didn't. By checking this page regularly you will be kept informed about how you are doing in class.

So, for those of you checking to find out more information, see below my first message to the class. GO TO THE END OF THE August 22, 2017 MESSAGE FOR THE LINK TO THE SIGN-UP PAGE.

    Just out today - expressive writing can help you manage stress. James Pennebaker in the 80’s advanced the benefits of journaling to reduce pressure and improve our immune system. “Expressive writing makes the mind work less hard on upcoming stressful tasks, which is what worriers often get “burned out.”

    Just 5 minutes a day of putting your thoughts and feelings on paper can alleviate stress and free your mind from worry so you can study!

    Just like writing notes while reading can help you be mindful of what you are reading and focus on what is most important to learn and know!

    New study says that writing can help you stop worrying 9/2017

    If you are registered for Section 2, I will see you at 9:35 AM in Morrill 011.

    On the first day of class you will be completing an assessment survey. After you have completed the survey, I will give you a copy of the syllabus, and then you will be signing up for assignments.

    All assignments are on a first come, first-served basis. At the end of this message is the link to the assignment pages that I will be bringing to class. You can look over what is available, and bring your top 3 or 4 choices for each of the 4 assignments you will be signing up for.

    You will need to sign up for:

    • A date to submit your health literacy paper

    Don't worry, I will go over everything in detail and answer your questions during the first several classes.

    A word to the wise - try and spread out your assignments so you don't have everything due on the same day! Planning ahead reduces stress! So, bring your planners!

    I will also be giving you an overview of the syllabus and your very first assignment - very easy, to get you into the swing of the semester!

    Also, if you need special accommodations, please obtain the appropriate paperwork from the Disability Office (Engleman C 105 A) and bring it to me on the first day of class.
