Introduction to Allied Health Careers. Teacher's Manual. Secondary School Pilot and Demonstration Project.
Rosenthal, Doris; Agran, Phyllis
This teaching manual covers a 1-year introductory program for Grade 10 for various allied health occupations as part of a 3-phase individualized, integrated curriculum entitled "The Health Care System," which includes work study and optional cooperative education. Field trips, field experiences, and exploratory work experience in health care facilities supplement classroom learning activities for these three modular units: (1) an orientation to the health care system, which provides an overview of its occupations, problems, and practices, (2) eight fictitious case histories which introduce students to the functions and responsibilities of health care personnel, and (3) three units dealing with preparation for field work at a hospital, the actual experience, and a summation unit. This federally funded pilot and demonstration project was developed by the project staff with the aid of a national advisory committee of leaders in the health care field. Instructions on using the manual and a discussion of the curriculum philosophy and design are included. Learning activities, teaching procedures, and general and specific behavioral goals and objectives are provided, in additional to resource and reference lists and materials. (Several pages may be light.) (AG)
