Preliminary Research for Senior Podcast

You will be/have been asked by Ms. Stangland to find an article for categories she will/has provide/d. Today you will be doing an extension of this activity in class. Instead of finding an article in a database, you and your team members will be finding general information on your topic. Make sure that the information you find is not from the same source as your team members. Be sure to site the source. This is due at the end of class. Please cut and paste your findings in the Google Doc you created the other day (use the proper format for the name of the Google Doc – ask me if you don’t know). Also, be sure to put your name so Ms. Stangland and I can give you credit.

 

Each team member must find the following:

Storyboard Assistance

Your junior year GPA is very important to your college applications next year. Please don’t let this easy final adversely affect your GPA. This assignment allows you to succeed while helping people that are less fortunate that you. Helping other people is our goal.

 

Hello GHA Students,

Some of you have been struggling with the creation of your storyboard. I have created a list of elements that I will be looking for when I grade your final (The PSA).

Remember we are trying to bring useful information to a young person that has or might be susceptible to the health topic you selected. So I will be asking the following:

 

  1. Does your PSA have the qualities to capture and keep the attention of a young person?
  2. Does your PSA bring useful information that is correct and data driven?
  3. Does your PSA express where the young person can seek help or further information on the health topic? Ie. A hotline, school nurse, specific organization, wellness center.

 

Also, it is important to remember the young person watching your PSA might not know as much as you do about your topic. Remember, you researched it. So I will be looking for the following:

 

  1. Do you define the problem – Data Driven
    1. Who is affected and why?
    2. How big is the problem?
    3. If you are seeking the extra points for a social justice connection you would need to show why one group is affected and make a fairness claim.
    4. What the viewer can do to not fall victim of this health issue (prevention) or how they can limit harm (risk or harm reduction) or both.

 

 

Last Research Round Due Tuesday

Hello Galileo Health Academy Juniors. The last round of research will be due next Tuesday (April 9th). I am posting this assignment today if you want to get a head start on it this weekend.

Becoming the expert – Understanding the problem – who is already doing what (existing organizations and their strategies) and what are the results?

1. Find three organizations that address your topic?

2. What services do they provide to clients in order to address the issue you are researching?

3. How does one access their services?

4. Do they address issues other than the one you are researching?

Ps. Don’t forget the interview and/or mentorship document on the Health Academy webpage. If the hyperlink below does not work cut and paste into a browser or go to the GHA website.

An Explanation of the Patient Assessment Wall and your Current Grade

An Explanation of the Assessment Wall 

(Important Date Friday January 25th)

You need to demonstrate competence in each assessment in sequence order from yellow through to pink. There is one exception. You can take the Detailed Physical Examination Assessment (Red) at any time through the written test. If you get 100% on the written test you still cannot proceed to the Ongoing Assessment (Pink) before proving competence in all previous levels (Yellow, Turquoise, Purple, and Blue). If you look at those that are at the red level you will see they have a post-it note indicating they need to prove competence in one of the lower levels before moving on.

Key

Each color on our back wall represents one of the six assessments you need to know.

Yellow (Y)                – Scene Size-Up                                   (10 points)

Turquoise (T)           – Initial Assessment                             (10 points)

Purple (P)                – Focused History                                 (10 points)

Blue (B)                   – Focused Physical Examination             (10 points)

Red (R)                    – Detailed Physical Examination            (25 points)                                                                                               (Written Test 144 Points)

Pink (P)                    – Ongoing Assessment                         (10 points)

Total   (75 points for wall completion) + (144 points for written test completion ) = 219

Due Date:

To pass this grading period everybody should be at the pink level by Friday January 25th. Those that do will receive their full 144 point.

Point Recovery:

Next week I will open my class at lunch three times for anybody that needs to retake or make up the Detailed Physical Examination Test. 100% is required to pass. There are 48 questions. Each question is worth 3 point for a total of 144 points. If you scored 138 points on the last test, you only missed 2 questions. You need to score 144 to pass the test and to make it through the red level. Please check the results of your first test on Synergy.

** Competence of all six assessments is required to deliver appropriate patient care and to pass the first grading period.

There are eight people who have demonstrated competence in Detailed Physical Examination by scoring 100% Gabbi, Derrick, Jessie, Sophia, Caroline, Emily and Amy.
