You may have noticed the cheerful little ad on the right side of most pages of this website, and wondered why it's so important. Allow me to illuminate you.
Dr. Jeff Hazim's product "Curriculum For Life" is a homeschool curriculum that establishes a Christian foundation for a healthy life: body, soul, and spirit. It is perfect for high school and family education for all ages. It is designed to give a student 35 weeks of thorough study enabling him or her to earn 3 school credits (Health, Bible, Elective).
Note: Since the product went on the market it has also been adapted for university classes and church study groups. This website does not attempt to describe how "Curriculum For Life" is being used in those additional contexts. It will only describe its original design as a homeschool curriculum.
"Curriculum For Life" is a 700+ page PDF product sold on CD, most of which is a transcript of Dr. Hazim's "Lessons for Healthy Living 2.0" 24-video teaching series (sold on DVD) plus numerous little mini-assignments spread throughout. Your whole family can share this product as a reference and study guide and just print off special pages (such as the Journaling to Wellness and the Dig Deeper pages) as needed for student assignments. You are certainly welcome to print off the entire product.
"Lessons for Healthy Living 2.0" is the product upon which the "Curriculum For Life" is based. It is a 10-DVD product comprising 24 short video lessons (approximately 11 hours of material) on a variety of health topics. When you purchase it you also receive a colourful 16 page booklet giving a brief description of the modules. You could probably get a lot out of the curriculum by itself, but not nearly as much as if you also purchase the "Lessons for Healthy Living 2.0" 10-DVD set because they are integrated. Please do that! You can purchase just the "Lessons for Healthy Living 2.0" DVD series without the "Curriculum For Life" if you do not wish to study the content in depth.
Many years ago, Drs. Jeff and Andrea Hazim taught "Lessons for Healthy Living 1.0" to a local audience. It happened to be recorded and then distributed, and became very popular, but then Chaim Goldman came along and showed the Hazims a better way. So the Hazims and the Goldmans teamed up to produce and promote the "Lessons for Healthy Living 2.0" in a more modern and up-beat way.
Then I (Connie Lacelle) came along just a few years ago and professionally polished the transcript of "Lessons for Healthy Living 2.0". Next, I took that transcript and punctuated it with numerous imaginative highlights and exercises, blowing Dr. Jeff away with my creative genius.
There are numerous topics mentioned throughout the curriculum. They are organized under the 24 module titles in the "Lessons for Healthy Living 2.0" series. Each video is a fast-paced 20 minutes of eye-opening and often humourous commentary illustrated by colourful slides. Each is taught by either Dr. Jeff Hazim or Dr. Andrea Hazim, and sometimes by both. Here are the module titles in order:
You can hear an interview and see a few sample pages of the curriculum at the Launch Webinar. Led by Chaim Goldman, the team (Kim Goldman, Dr. Jeff, and I) talked about such things as how we came to develop the curriculum, how the curriculum can be used with all ages, how the LFHL videos are integrated with the CFL text, how repetition is used for maximum effect, instructions for making the most of the curriculum, whether non-homeschoolers can use it, etc.
