Medical Terminology: Latin Words/Abbreviations; Special Signs and Symbols. Health Occupations Education Module.
Temple Univ., Philadelphia, PA. Div. of Vocational Education.
This module on medical terminology (using Latin words/abbreviations; special signs and symbols) is one of 17 modules designed for individualized instruction in health occupations education programs at both the secondary and postsecondary levels. This module consists of an introduction to the module topic, a list of resources needed, and three learning experiences. Each learning experience contains an overview, an objective (e.g., after completing the required reading, use some common Latin words), and two to three activities (e.g., study the lists "Latin Words/Abbreviations" and "Special Signs and Symbols"; practice writing the Latin words/abbreviations and signs and symbols and give their meanings). Information sheets (such as lists of Latin words/abbreviations and signs/symbols and their meanings) are generally provided for each activity. To provide feedback to students, a self-check with model answers is given for the first two learning experiences; a student performance assessment for use by the instructor follows the third learning experience and completes the module.
