Target Behavior Assignment Overview
Purpose and Objective
The purpose of this assignment is to get serious about your health and begin making a lasting behavior change that will benefit your health. Over the time span of 12 weeks, you will complete 36-60 typed (or another media with permission) journal entries to document your behavior change on one target behavior. This translates to writing three to five journal entries per week.
Each journal entry should be at least 300-500 words. In addition to describing aspects of your journey, you must answer questions posed on this folder with a minimum of two sentences each. All questions that must be answered will be found in the journals for this assignment.
The assignment is broken into parts to aid your behavior change process. Each part must be turned in by the date specified by the syllabus and via the corresponding “Part” drop box on Blackboard.
If you submit the part on time, you will receive credit for that part and feedback. The amount of credit you will receive will be determined by the part’s rubric. Your score will be counted in the 30% category of your grade.
