Medical Terminology: Suffixes. Health Occupations Education Module.
Temple Univ., Philadelphia, PA. Div. of Vocational Education.
This module on medical terminology (suffixes) 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. The first two learning experiences each contain an overview, an objective (e.g., given information concerning the commonly used suffixes, identify the suffix with its proper meaning), and two activities (e.g., "Seek and Find" 33 suffixes; review the list of common suffixes). Information sheets (such as word lists and puzzles) are provided for each activity. To provide feedback to students, a self-check with model answers is given. The third learning experience contains an overview, terminal objective (in an actual school situation, use the proper suffix related to each unit studied), and a student performance assessment form for use by the instructor to rate student mastery of the entire module.
