Use this focused rubric and the resources below to develop your site
- High-risk behaviors and negative lifestyle choices: identify habits and behaviors that are more commonly seen in the U.S. college student population that can lead to poor quality sleep.
- Short- and long-term health effects: discuss the health effects of poor sleep habits as it relates to the habits and behaviors you identified in rubric item number one.
- Symptoms and/or indicators, and tests/diagnoses for a person that may be on the negative end of the wellness spectrum: detail symptoms and indicators for someone struggling with achieving quality sleep. How would a healthcare provider diagnose sleep deprivation?
- Optimal lifestyle choices for prevention, and how to seek treatment when needed: how can U.S. college students improve their sleep habits? Identify different treatment options for someone if sleep problems persist or worsen after making lifestyle changes.
- Globalized content is included: and do not forget to copy and paste the following focus points/questions into your site. Compare sleeping patterns and statistics in the U.S. to your assigned country. What similarities and differences do you see? What can our country learn from your assigned country to enhance our amount of and quality of sleep?
- Information is adapted to the college-aged population (15-24 years of age): make this consistent. It is no surprise that students taking college classes in addition to juggling other responsibilities will struggle with achieving adequate sleep. This age group should not be neglected in your site.
- Credible sources referenced and cited in-text: for all information, including infographics and videos used.
- Site uses concise and easily understood information, as well as a variety of images, infographics, and/or videos: think of what you like to see when you look up health information. Make your page easily navigable, and sections of information clearly identified. Avoid text that is too small to read, and be sure your images are not blurry or cropped too much.
