Wilcox to write a textbook specifically for this need. ■ We are proud to present to you…. Introduction to Medical Terminology!!
Our Vision ■ To provide an instructional resources for teaching and learning medical terminology at the high school level ■ To provide multiple activities within the textbook adding a hands-on interactive approach to learning Medical terminology ■ and on the companion website to enhance learning ■ To provide a variety of instructional materials for the instructors
Old School ■ Flash Card Drill – Table groups – Small group race – Foldable – Whiteboard – Diagram card
Review Games-Word Surgery ■ Cystocele
Review Games-Word Surgery ■ Hernia of the bladder
Review Games-Word Surgery ■ Bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy
Review Games-Word Surgery ■ Removal of both sides of the ovaries and fallopian tubes
New School ■ Word Part Practice – E-flash cards, combining forms, prefixes and suffixes – E-flash cards for common diagnostic test and treatments – Flash cards in the Teacher resource kit – Lesson plans on different methods to use Flash Cards ■ Table drills ■ Team competitions ■ Card sort
Tried and True Techniques ■ Word Part Practice – Review exercises for reinforcement over combining forms, prefixes and suffixes found at end of chapter ■ Word Surgery ■ Word Construction ■ Word Parts
For the visual learner ■ A&P practice – Label art in both the student textbook – and Animations on companion web-site – Labeling exercises and Q/A review at end of chapter ■ Diseases & Conditions – Common terms and high quality illustrations – Case studies and review questions at the end of chapter
Other hands-on activities ■ Play dough conditions and body parts ■ Balloons ■ Fruit/Vegetables ■ Organ man ■ Pictures/xrays
New school ■ Apps- drop and drag anatomy ■ Build a body ■ Heart Decide ■ Quizlet
Additional Exercises found in Student Textbook ■ Chapter Review Items – Abbreviations – Spelling – Word parts/prefix/suffix practice – Pronunciation – Medical Record practice ■ Cumulative Review – found after every other chapter – Increases retention level
Meeting Standards ■ Careers to Consider - Investigate a few options that involve careers with each body system Example- The Blood and Lymphatic System Three unique careers include: Allergist/Immunologist Epidemiologist Oncology Nurse
New School-Meeting Standards ■ Critical Thinking – Ponder This – Inquiring Minds – Student Challenges – Team Challenges – Case Studies – Search the Source
Techniques ■ Ponder This – Sprinkled throughout the chapters, offers opportunities to break-out into team investigations or discussion – Example – What do you think is the most commonly broken bone in the human body? Share your response with your classmates, along with an explanation for your reasoning. – Answer found in the instructors book
Techniques ■ Ponder This – The clavicle is the most commonly broken bone in the human body. It is very close to the skin and can be injured in a variety of ways. The most common way the clavicle is injured are by sports injuries (direct hit) or a fall. – Other common fractures are the arm, wrist, ankle and hip….
Techniques ■ Inquiring Minds – Thought provoking questions, mini-labs, tid-bits of information – Example-Have you ever heard of noise induced hearing loss (NIHI)? On a daily basis we experience sound in our environment, from television, radios, machinery etc…Usually these sounds are at safe level and don’t damage your hearing, but sounds can be harmful when they are too loud, even for short periods of time…. Consider what activities you do on a daily basis that be affecting your hearing and compare them to our list.
Techniques ■ Inquiring Minds – Example continued- mini lab examples from Ch. 4 – Finger print analysis- inherited or random patterns – Skin the body’s natural covering, acts like a glove. To better understand one of the most important function of the skin activity: ■ Materials needed : glove, bowl, hot water, pepper and scissors
Techniques ■ Search the Source - research current events - Examples There are more than 30 different types of Muscular Dystrophy, but Duchenne muscular dystrophy tops the list. Working with a partner, visit the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website and research facts about DMD. What is it? What are the common signs and symptoms? How does DMD develop? What is its prevalence?
Techniques ■ Team Challenge – Mini-labs or research with a hint of team competition – Example from the Respiratory System (need index cards) – “Take a Deep Breath” : Working in teams, write the names of the respiratory system organs/structures listed below on separate index cards. One student shuffles the cards and hands out to each student. Next arrange yourself in a line to show the correct sequence before the other team does. – Now Exhale
Techniques ■ Case Study – Simulated patient study with “Your Turn” section to engage students in their own thoughts on how to handle the situations – Followed up with Medical Record Practice
Techniques ■ Student Challenge – Fun, interactive, engaging activities to allow students to share and shine – Example from Ch 10 Special Senses – In this activity students will work in pairs to perform modified version of the “Stereognosis exam” – Some materials required …
Techniques ■ Fascinating Facts – Multiple snip-its of insightful, fun facts – Example – Cancer of the heart is a rare diagnosis, because human heart cells stop dividing shortly after birth. – If bones and steel were the same weight, the bones of a human body would be six times stronger than steel.
Other Resources Available ■ Exam. View question text bank – Includes 1000 Test Questions ■ Power. Point slides – Reinforce key concepts – Keep students engaged with “Remember This? ” and “Your Turn” slides
Remember This? ■ What is the function of the subcutaneous layer of skin? to provide heat insulation and protect the deeper tissues of the body ■ Through what process does skin excrete small amounts of water, salt, and metabolic waste products? perspiration
Your Turn What are the meanings of the following word parts? ■ albin/o white ■ cis/o to cut ■ ichthy/o dry; scaly ■ myc/o fungus
