Any revies for PHED classes at Macomb? Need some guidance!

  1. I started an online "wellness" course last week and dropped it after opening the second week's packet. It had an insane amount of coursework to complete for the week (at least according to my experience in three other online classes it was insane!) there was no participation from fellow classmates (which impacts my ability to get my discussion points) and the professor wasn't around like he should have been. I am not sure whether to try and take the "wellness: lifestyle choices" class on campus instead and try to avoid the professor who's online class is awful, or try to take the prevention, intervention and treatment class on campus, which would get me my cpr certification I will hopefully be needing if I get a good letter this week. One class is two credits, the other is three and is four hours twice a week, which is a lot. It's only six weeks, though. Does anyone have any experience with these two classes and the professors that teach them? The reviews for the professor that I just dropped were not great, but I had no idea that his classwork was actually developed by another professor, one with horrible reviews (I can totally see why!). I should have asked this question a week ago, but I didn't know I'd be so disappointed in the class I had signed up for and end up dropping it yesterday.

    Hey Kelly:
    Are these classes required for the nursing program at MCC? If so do we need to get them done before fall 2007 or can we take them while we are in the program?

    I don't attend MCC so I am not sure which are good teacher at MCC. Had it been OCC or UofM-D I would be able to help you out.

    Don't be depressed. There are time in our life that we have to drop a class or some thing. It is completely natural and there is nothing wrong in dropping. I have had do drop a few classes in the past.

    .
    You need a phys ed class for the degree requirement, not necessarily the nursing program. I just wanted to get it out of the way now .

    Hi~ I am currently taking lifestyle choices health and wellness at Center Campus on Tues. nights and it is really rather easy not alot of course work. We just this week had our mid term and before this no work. My instructor is adjunct so I don't know how much she teaches. Hope this gives you some answers.

    Take Care,

    That course should be easy. For week two of my online class we were supposed to write a research paper, do an interview of a couple married 25 years and write a paper on it, and then write a self assessment paper too, then reply to everone else's three papers and do two quizzes . The workload was nuts!!!! I signed up for the class that has the cpr and first aid instead. Hopefully I'll be needing that cpr certification :spin: !

    I took this course in spring 05 - it sounds about the same as when I took it. My suggestion is to not get so overwhelmed. The papers when I had were very easy to write and were not graded hard at all. I think I actually made up the interview and just wrote the paper. Just take it one thing at a time. I didn't do any of the reading, you have enough time on the quizzes to look up all the answers -- most questions are common sense (basic nutrition and exercise, etc.) anyway. You will be fine! Take care!
