Grade 11 First Aid/CPR/Drug Education
This course encompasses several components of the comprehensive health education model, including injury prevention and safety, drugs and medicine, health promotion, and disease prevention. The major portion of this course is devoted to the attainment of the skills and knowledge for responding in emergencies. The American Heart Association Course First Aid/CPR/AED for Community and Schools resources serves as the basis for the curriculum. At the end of the unit, all students who have shown mastery are given the opportunity to apply for AHA certification (for a nominal fee). Additionally, students will research and analyze current drug trends and the process of addiction. Through participation in group presentations, students will enhance communication, problem-solving, and refusal skills.
