    (9000Cy) Safety Education (.5 credit) Blended Course
     

    Safety Education is required for graduation.  It is offered primarily in 10th grade but is also available in 11th grade.  It introduces  students to the potential dangers that surround them at home, at school, at work, and in the operation of motor vehicles.  Prevention of accidents is stressed with suggestions offered on recognizing potential dangers and means for avoiding these accidents.

    This course will be offered in a cyber/blended environment. Most of the work will be facilitated by the teacher online. A blended (hybrid) course is an online course with required real-time, face-to-face sessions. Blended (hybrid) course instruction is split between learning activities online and in a specified location, based on course content. To participate in the online portion of a blended course, a student must have basic computer knowledge along with access to a computer and the Internet. Attendance will still be required in school, but students will be working in a cyber-environment for this course. Is blended learning right for me? Blended learning is for students who wish to combine face-to-face instruction with online activities such as collaborative discussions, group projects, or other assignments. Successful blended learning students are: interested in active and participatory learning--both in the classroom and online; comfortable with using the computer, the Internet, and Google Docs; organized and good at time management; strong writers, critical thinkers, and communicators; willing to dedicate quality time to the online component of the class.
