My students need heart, brain and lung models and clay for hands-on anatomy activities.
My health science students are high school students who have chosen to give back to society by pursuing various careers within the field of healthcare. These students are our future healthcare providers. Their hopes and dreams are to work as nursing assistants, nurses, surgeons, physicians, radiology technicians, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and so on. The possibilities are endless!
These students will be the future of healthcare.
They will be the doctors and nurses providing care for us when we need it. The field of healthcare is constantly changing. New diseases are discovered daily, and we need strong, motivated, and dependable students to decide that they will not settle for good enough! Their commitment to excellence may lead to medical advances that we have long been praying and wishing for, such as the cure for neurological diseases that leave innocent people without hope, or maybe even a cure for all types of cancer!
My students are from a small rural town and are never expected to do the unexpected. But the truth is that we have intelligent, hard-working, selfless students who are working diligently to leave their marks on the world! With your help, we can change their dreams into obtainable goals!
The resources I have requested will help my students master the content material. Most high school students have been exposed to very little human anatomy and physiology prior to my classes. These students are very intrigued by the material, but it is also a very challenging class. The students are just beginning to learn the language of health care. With these materials, I can involve the students in activities that will capture their attention, engaging them in the lesson. I try to incorporate as many hands-on activities as I can throughout the curriculum, which in turn costs money out of my pocket. I currently pay for most of the materials needed for classroom activities, which limits the amount of hands-on learning in my classroom. My students need classroom tools that can be used for hands-on learning, such as a heart-lung model, brain model, and clay tools that can be used to learn in a fun and interactive environment.
Many of my students have lifelong dreams of working in health care.
They have been given the desire to devote themselves to helping others. I want to support these students as they begin their prestigious journeys. The project materials I have requested will help students master the Health Science curriculum, which will begin to prepare them for their future careers. One day, these students will be our health care providers! Benjamin Franklin said, "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." The materials I have requested will allow students to get involved and learn through hands-on learning activities, and I feel confident that will lead to student success!!!
