HOPE—Semester B (H)
Just say yes...to health and fitness.
In the first semester of our HOPE course, you learned all about fitness, nutrition, and mental health. You followed Shmoop's workouts as you developed your fitness wings.
In the second semester of our HOPE course, aligned to Florida state standards, you'll take the fitness bull by the horns and implement your own fitness plan while learning about substance abuse, sex, first aid, and infectious diseases.
Through a series of health lessons, activities, and physical education projects, you'll learn how to keep yourself safe while putting into practice the fitness concepts we've been focusing on. By the end of the course, you'll be able to
- play a group sport and understand the skills-related components of fitness involved.
- know the risks involved with drugs and alcohol.
- understand the basics of the reproductive system, sex, and healthy relationships.
- keep yourself physically healthy and safe.
- meet your fitness goals and ride off into the sunset with your back pocket full of fitness knowledge.
This is the second semester of our HOPE course. Check out Semester A here.
