Link to Online Anonymous Question Box

from:Chamberlin, Amanda

to:PE 1, FA001

Instead of making an actual box, I've created an "online question box." It is completely anonymous, meaning there is no way of knowing who submitted which question. Because of this, in addition to the fact that participation constitutes 29% of your grade in this class, I hope to see a wide variety of questions being submitted. "Health" is defined as one's total physical, mental, and social well-being. So, there is a plethora of topics one can take into consideration when visiting this site. This is your chance to get answers to questions that you may have never been able to ask before, for whatever reason.
