Have a student out on medical or has been absent and is in need to making up the missed points?
This research paper assignment will give the student a guideline on instructions for the paper and a rubric to follow along with.
The paper is open ended. Typically I allow a student to choose a topic that is nutrition, health, or fitness related. The easy topics I help a student choose is a paper about HIIT, Vitamin B, or calcium intake. Often times I will also extend the topic to the injury the student might be dealing with and how to rehab for it correctly. It is all up to you! You can assign a topic or help the student choose.
I have had students turn in a wonderful range of learning topics. Students have turned papers in on shin splint rehab, diabetes, brain trauma, effective exercise regimens, all types of nutritional topics, aerobic vs. anaerobic exercise, and even cancers that a family member have been dealing with. The make up research paper can be personalized to a student really easily and hopefully they can choose a topic that really means something to them while they research about fitness and health.
