The Musculoskeletal System. Instructional Materials in Anatomy and Physiology for Pennsylvania Health Occupations Programs.
National Evaluation Systems, Inc., Amherst, MA.
This instructional modular unit with instructor's guide provides materials on aspects of one of the major systems of the human body--the musculoskeletal system. Its purpose is to introduce the student to the structures and functions of the human musculoskeletal system--and the interrelationships of the two--and to familiarize the student with some of the terms and concepts necessary for an understanding of the musculoskeletal system. The modular unit is made up of several components: a pretest; seven instructional modules with objectives, informative materials, and corresponding post-tests; optional activities for the students; and a glossary of terms used in the unit. Topics covered in the modules include an introduction to the skeletal system, axial skeleton, appendicular skeleton, an introduction to the muscular system, major muscles of the body, supporting structures of the musculoskeletal system, and movements. The instructor's guide provides suggestions for effective use of the materials, including descriptlons of each component, use of the components, scoring the post-tests, and answers to the post-tests. Three additional modules on the respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems are available separately (see Note). (YLB)
