American College of Sports Medicine


The ACSM is the most reliable authority on physical activity and health. The design of
the class adheres to the positions stands in the areas of cardiovascular conditioning and
endurance, flexibility training and range of motion, muscular strength and muscular
endurance, and body composition.

Attendance/Participation: Attendance is mandatory and will be taken each class meeting.


Students must come prepared to participate in physical activity as well as have appropriate
materials to discuss class content. Excused absences include school sponsored field trips & illness
with doctor note. Any absence will adversely affect your participation portion of your grade.

Methods of Learning & Instruction in this class: Each of us has a unique learning style.
Therefore it is the intent of this course to present the course material in a variety of ways to promote
high levels of learning. Presentation (instructor and student), class discussion, guest speakers, field
trips, outside reading, field-based experience, homework, & group activities will all be included in
this class.

Academic Honesty: Morally and spiritually, Southern Adventist University is dedicated to


scholastic integrity. Consequently, both students and faculty are required to maintain academic
honesty. Incidents of academic dishonesty will be handled as outlined in the university catalog.

Deportment:
The expectation for everyone is to treat others as you would like to be treated. While we can learn
to share and laugh with each other, at no time are criticism, laughing at, or negative banter
appropriate in class.

Disability Support Services:


In keeping with University policy, any student with a disability who needs academic
accommodations must call Disability Support Services at 236-2574 or stop by Lynn Wood Hall,
room 308, to arrange a confidential appointment with the Disability Services Coordinator (DSC)
before or during the first week of classes. Students who request accommodations after the third
week of the semester might not complete the process in time to receive accommodations for that
semester. Legally, no retroactive accommodations can be provided. For more details, visit the
