Mary's Story: A Curriculum for Teaching Medical Terminology.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park. Inst. for the Study of Adult Literacy.
This packet of materials for a class on medical terminology consists of a collection of stories with highlighted vocabulary, teacher's guide, and student's guide. The materials teach medical terms in a series of stories about a woman named Mary Consola. Each story begins with a list of word parts that will be learned; after the story, new word combinations are listed. A glossary is provided. The teacher's guide discusses the three components of each lesson in the core curriculum: before, during, and after reading activities. Teaching strategies are suggested, and additional review activities are described. The student's guide consists of reproducible informational sheets and activities. An introduction discusses language changes, a short history of the English language, a short history of medical language, and vocabulary building through learning word parts. Reproducible activities are then presented for 13 lessons. Pre/posttests are also provided. (YLB)
