Every Body Needs First Aid... A Manual for LEP Students [Draft] and Teacher Guide.
The manual contains both student and teacher materials for instruction in basic physiology and first aid. The instructional materials were developed for use with limited-English-proficient high school students, but are suitable for high school first aid classes because of their simplified English and format, sequential organization, detailed table of contents, line illustrations, and practical and written exercises accompanying each topic. Unit topics include: the circulatory system; the respiratory system; the skeletal system; an introduction to first aid; bleeding; dressings and bandages; specific injuries; shock; poisoning; artificial respiration; choking and swallowed objects; burns; frostbite and freezing; heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and heat cramps; bone and joint injuries; sudden illness; and moving a victim from a dangerous place. Units contain up to 25 subtopics, each with illustrations and exercises. The accompanying teaching guide contains a section on procedures, techniques, and strategies for use of the instructional materials, and answer keys for each unit. (MSE)
