Class Descriptions

This movement class will reinforce the importance of physical fitness in our daily lives. The physical fitness exercises will target the development of core strength and motor coordination through the following 4 areas: aerobic, strength training, flexibility, and balance. Students will be taught how to develop a SMART goal that will help them measure their progress. Students will be encouraged to compete against themselves to improve their performance.

This introductory class will teach individuals how to respond to emergencies that may happen in the home. This class will cover the basics of: when to call 911 and how to access the 911 system; and first aid care for cuts, burns, falls, electrical shock, and choking. Topics such as the elements of CPR and use of an AED will be introduced. Students will be given materials that are required for practicing first aid skills during class.

This class will be the core focus of Project ELEVATE and will be co-taught with a SUNY Rockland Hospitality Instructor. The class will introduce students to elements of the ServSafe curriculum including: appropriate kitchen safety guidelines and procedures, kitchen sanitation, and personal hygiene for safe food handling. The students will apply established safety rules and guidelines to maintain a safe kitchen environment as they utilize the SUNY Rockland kitchen to make lunch for themselves!

This beginner class will teach students the basics of photography including the rule of thirds, focal point, and perspective. Students will be expected to utilize the camera on their individual cell phones or tablets to create projects in which they incorporate the basics of photography.
