Health Career Assignment #1

Assignment  #1

To complete this assignment you would need at least three pieces of paper, a pen or pencil, computer and quiet, quiet, quiet.

Step 1

Go to the “Explore Health Careers. Org” website.


Step 2

Using the column on the website furthest to your left select and write down (on a half piece of paper with your name on it) 15 health careers using the bulleted guideline below.

  • Two careers that you are most familiar with
  • Four careers that you learned about during your hospital visits
  • Four careers that, if you had to pick a career today these would be my top four.
  • Two careers you find odd or have never heard of.
  • Two careers you would never ever, ever, ever, ever, select
  • One career that you find very interesting but you feel you would never pursue it.


Step 3

Using the careers you selected in bullet point three (above), write an “info card” for each on a half piece of paper. Each info card needs to contain the following in bullet pointed format:

  • Your name and period
  • The name of the career
  • Which category on the website’s left most column you found it under
  • What the yearly salary range is
  • Write a paragraph about what a person with the career title does
  • If “working conditions” is part of the article write a paragraph on it
  • Write a paragraph about what kind of training/education is needed for that career

Hint: Plagiarism is unacceptable.  Your paragraphs need to be in your words. Try the “magnate word” summary technique you have been practicing all year.

Step 4

Using the career you selected in bullet point six write a paragraph with no less that 9 sentences telling me why you selected this career and why you don’t feel you would pursue it.

Sacramento Script

Every student needs to be able to successfully function in all four positions. The following is an example of what needs to be communicated.


I. Greeter

The greeter interacts with the secretary/administrative assistant and is the initial greater to the legislator.


Interaction with the secretary:

Hello. We represent the American Heart Association we have a ________o’clock  appointment with Senator _________________.


Interaction with the legislator:

Thank you for seeing us. My name is____________ (always use your first and last name). We are from Galileo Academy high school school in San Francisco and  _____________ high school in Sacramento. We are here to talk with you about SB 912. These are my colleagues (they need to introduce themselves with a handshake).


II. Knowledge Bringer A

SB912 maintains the current nutritional standards for food and beverages sold in vending machines in state buildings. The current guidelines are about to expire and SB912 keeps that from happening. SB 912 makes no other changes to existing law. SB912 offers the over 2.4 million state employees healthy choices.


III. Knowledge Bringer B

We are in the middle of an obesity epidemic and more than half adults and teens in the state are either overweight or obese. The cost of obesity is great. In California we spend an estimated 41.2 billion dollars on health related costs. Taxpayers bear much of that cost.

There are about 2.4 million government employees working for the state of California. CalPERS spends approximately $4 billion annually on health care costs – almost 300 million on cardiovascular disease and over 100 million on diabetes.  SB912 offers healthy choices to state employees.



(the conclusion includes a summary, ask for questions, ask for support and thank you)


SB912 keep the current nutritional guidelines from expiring. We want to offer state employees the ability to stay health while working for the state of California. It makes sense for both health reasons and economic reasons.


Senator ________ do you have any questions?

Senator ________ can we count on your support?


Thank you very much for your time

Expository Paper

Write a paper (one or two paragraphs) that describes how Actin an Myosin work together to make muscle contraction occur.

Be sure to mention the role of Ca++, Mg++, ATP, ADP, Troponin, Tropomyosin, Actin and Myosin.

Due Friday.

Muscle/Skeletal Homework Assignment

Create a table that has four columns. The first column will represent the name of a muscle. You will be selecting 6 different muscles. One muscle from the arm. One muscle from the leg. One muscle from the back. One from the abdomen. One muscle from the face and one muscle of your choice. Fill in the fields in the first column with the muscle names. One name per field. Fill in the second column fields with the muscle point of origin on the bone. Fill in the third column fields with the muscle point of insertion and in the last column fill in the action.

Your Table Should Look Like This


 Name of Muscle Point of Origin Point of Insertion Action
 .  .


Using the blue text book fill in the pertinent information in the fields on the table.
Be prepared to show where on the bone is the “point of origin” and where on the bone is the “point of insertion.” This need to be done with confidence and certainty.  Also, be prepared to demonstrate the action. To complete this assignment you will be using chapter 6 (Skeletal System) and chapter 7 (Muscular System). Pg. 160 has the information you will need to understand the action column requirements.

** Note: If you copy a table and are unable to point at the exact location of the point of origin, insertion or the action, you will receive no credit for the assignment.
