Below each of the four outcomes listed under the Critical Analysis requirement are listed in the course requirements, content, learning activities, and documentation relevant to the outcomes that promote the students ability to:
Within the senior health seminar course, students focus on preparing a professional analysis of a community thus working with validity and reliability of health materials presented within the school and within the community setting. The material they receive needs to be justified and valid.
Throughout the course, many different view points are brought forth and students soon to enter the health profession need to be able to express their thoughts with logical rational. Students need to be able to understand, listen to different points of view, express their view, explain in a logical progression their viewpoint and justify it by known theories in health education. Throughout the analysis, students compare existing communities and propose future changes.
Students will address the inadequacies or biases that are present within their school and community analysis. They will have to justify the information as valid and/or reliable. This will be done by involving a community and a school district in an assessment, taking a stand on their material and then proposing future implementation of programs that would meet national and state standards.
Students study the current school system, the community in which the school exists and through class discussions and interactions with people throughout the community analyze their findings and then support them through documentation that is valid and reliable.
