    COURSE DESCRIPTION FOR AS100: A Journey into Aviation History: This is an aviation history course focusing on the development of flight throughout the centuries.  It starts with ancient civilizations, then progresses through time to modern day.  The emphasis is on civilian and military contributions to aviation; the development, modernization, and transformation of the Air Force; and a brief astronomical and space exploration history.  It is interspersed with concise overviews of the principles of flight to include basic aeronautics, aircraft motion and control, flight power, and rockets.  Throughout the course, there are readings, videos, hands-on activities, and in-text and student workbook exercises to guide in the reinforcement of the materials.

    COURSE DESCRIPTION FOR Leadership Education 400; Principles of Management. 

    This course provides exposure to the fundamentals of management.   The text contains many leadership topics that will benefit students as well as provide them with some of the necessary skills needed to put into practice what they have learned during their time in AFJROTC. We are confident this course, coupled with what cadets have already learned during their time in AFJROTC, will equip them with the qualities needed to serve in leadership positions within the corps.  Throughout the text are many ethical dilemmas, case studies, and role play activities built into the lessons. These activities are based on real life experiences and will allow students the opportunity to practice what they learn by getting involved in discussions and expressing their opinions.

    Course Objectives:

    1. Know the history and the importance of management.
    2. Know the techniques and skills involved in planning and decision making.
    3. Know the importance of managing change, stress, and innovation.
    4. Know the key elements of individual and group behavior, the importance of the communication process, and the characteristics of a good leader.


    Military drill and ceremonies is also taught as part of the Leadership Education course.  All cadets will learn basic drill and ceremonies (armed and unarmed) and will be expected to demonstrate a 30 command drill routine.


    COURSE DESCRIPTION FOR WELLNESS:  This course provides an exercise program focused upon individual baseline improvements with goal of achieving a national standard as calculated with age and gender. Wellness is instrumental in developing citizens of character dedicated to serving our nation and communities. This program is provided as a tool to help the student develop individualized training programs as a cadet.

    The Wellness Program course objectives are:

    1.    Create a personalized training routine based on baseline, age, gender, and participation in the Presidential Fitness Program (PFP).
    2.    Strive to complete the number of repetitions indicated in their Presidential Fitness Program.
    3.    Perform all exercises at home to make adequate progress.
    4.    Participate fully and observe safety precautions including getting hydrated before starting an exercise routine.


    Uniform Day:  Uniform days are on Wednesday and Thursday every week and will change for the cadets due to the A-day B-day schedule.  Wearing the uniform is an important part of the JROTC program and will count as a major grade.  All uniforms are provided on loan and must be returned at the end of the school year.  Students are required to clean their uniforms as necessary.  A physical training (PT) uniform is issued and is required to be worn on all PT Days.


    Grading Procedures:  

    Cadets will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

    1.  Class participation, homework, quizzes, and uniform wear will count for 40% of the course grade.  There will be a minimum of one grade weekly.
    2.  Major tests will count for 60% of the course grade.  There will be a minimum of one grade per nine weeks. Weekly uniform inspections are counted as a test grade.
