"Do Hard Things" Unit
Brothers Alex and Brett Harris penned the book "Do Hard Things" when they were 18 years old. The best seller's theme is "A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations" and serves as a catalyst for a challenging 8th grade Physical Education Unit. The 8th graders start the school year with an eight week Cardio Kickboxing Unit that challenges them physically and mentally. The students encourage each other as they strive to push through each workout.
After the Cardio-Kickboxing Unit, the students begin training for a 5K Mud Run to support Veterans, which is in April. The program is a three day per week workout of run/walk sequences. Gradually the walking portion of the workout becomes less as the running portion increases. Students receive a running schedule each week along with a weekly reading/reflection assignment from the "Do Hard Things" book.
