South Central Kentucky AHEC 2011 Institute in Health Careers
June 13 – 17, 2011
Teachers of Grades 3 -12
This summer’s Institute will focus on real world applications
for math, science, language arts, health science, and practical living,
as well as integration into social sciences and history.
Curriculum will include the Health Sciences Integrated Activities CD with integration into Math, Science, Health, Language Arts, Social Sciences, History, and P.E.
The curriculum manual examining health careers provides 25 lesson plans with goals, and objectives, innovative worksheets, transparency masters, lecture material and unique learning experiences that can be adapted to meet core content/academic expectations.
It is designed with teacher flexibility in mind – lessons can be lengthened or shortened, used in single or sequential units, and with beginning to advanced level classes.
We will be shadowing health professionals for two days in Glasgow, interviewing them about knowledge and skill requirements, personality traits, education needed, as well as their roles and responsibilities.
Implementation is the focus of the last day. Possible barriers and solutions will be explored as well as how the curriculum can be used to address the appropriate Kentucky standards.
Teacher participants will receive the curriculum resources worth over $800, training in implementation, and a stipend of $100 per day with the understanding that the curriculum will be implemented in the classroom.
We will need the numbers and demographics of students to whom the teacher taught components of the curriculum.
