Tuesday, October 14th
Today we began class by taking the lesson 28 reading quiz - if you were absent today, please make arrangements to make this up during the SMART period this week. We spent the majority of class today discussing the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease, and the ways CVD is directly related to diet.
Complete the following two items as homework tonight:
1. Writing Strong Claims: Turn the claim made on page 514 in the “Why It’s Important” section into a strong, evidence-based claim using supporting evidence from the lesson.
2. Performance Task: Suppose your friend tells you that the doctor just informed them they need to dramatically change their diet, because they are at a high right for developing CVD at a young age. Given that you are an expert on understanding dietary guidelines, your task is to create one day’s worth of meals (3 meals and 2 snacks) that follow a strict heart healthy diet.
