BEPAA-Integrated Health Sciences (IHS) STEM Curriculum Tools Access DEMONSTRATION

  1. 1. BEPAA Board for the Education of People of African Ancestry 286 Convent Avenue New York, NY 10031 Integrated Health Sciences Program For H.S. students interested in pursuing careers in the health professions. Designed and Facilitated by Marc Imhotep Cray, M.D.
  2. 2. CURRIULUM ORIENTATION & LESSONS GUIDEBOOK (A STEM Standards Compliant Program) Academic Alignment All of the content and methods deployed from the BEPAA Integrated Health Sciences Program curriculum have been aligned to the NYS Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and National Science Education Benchmarks (at Grades 9-12) contained in specific math and science core academic courses. Supportive documentation: Inside BEPAA- Integrated Health Sciences Cloud Folder o NYS STEM Based Lesson Methodologies o Study of the Human Body Grades 9-12 Benchmarks, American Association for the Advancement of Science o National Science Education Standards| e-Book
  3. 3. NYS STEM Ed Collaborative working definition of "STEM Education" STEM Education refers to utilizing the NYS MST Standards in the teaching and learning of the Science, Technology Education, Engineering and Math (STEM) disciplines, in an innovative, integrated, collaborative, and applied fashion to a level of challenge sufficient for college and/or career readiness. NGSS Website (Next Generation Science Standards) 3

  6. 6. How It Works  BEPAA IHS curriculum integrates subject matters and applies the theoretical to real-life clinical relevancy to make learning easier, faster and fun.  Humor is integrated to engage the learner; and several special features, including video animations, 3D simulations and graphics, are incorporated throughout the curriculum to enhance the learning experience. ------------------------------------ Necessary Tools the learner will need to fully engage the curriculum  A computer or mobile device with Internet access (for out-of-class reading and homework assignments)  A four subject loose-leaf notebook and writing utensil  A calculator (particularly for the math chemistry and physics modules) BEPAA Integrated Health Sciences Program 6

  15. 15. Evaluation Methods  The facilitator will use oral quizzing and the Socratic Method throughout the enrichment experience to access student progress.  A 20 to 30 item Summative Exam with a combination of MCQ, Fill in the Blank, Matching and Short-answer format questions will be administered at the end of each module.  A learner „s performance evaluation instrument will be filled on each student accessing class participation, peer and facilitator interaction, ability to gather and record of information, homework assignment completion, organizational skills, understanding of the scientific concepts, mechanisms and theories of health science presented, research skills and overall academic growth in life/biological and chemical science. All of the above will be weigh together by the facilitator and the learner will be provided performance feedback on an H= Honors, HP= High Pass, P=Pass, F= Fail scale. BEPAA Integrated Health Sciences Program 15
  16. 16. Learning Components of Each Lesson 1. Objectives and Key Terms  Objectives and key terms are presented at the beginning of each lesson to help easily identify key topics, concepts and mechanisms. 2. Phonetic pronunciations follow selected key terms to assist you with pronouncing the terms correctly.  It is also helpful to review the objectives and key terms after you have completed independent-study review of a lesson.  Test yourself to see whether you can answer each objective and define each key term.  If you cannot answer each objective and define each key term, you will know which areas to study again. BEPAA Integrated Health Sciences Program 16
  17. 17. Learning Components of Each Unit (2) 3. Special Focus  The Special Focus feature provides in-depth information on areas of particular interest that relate to concepts presented in the respective lectures and/or textbook chapters.  Two of the main classic example we will cover are homeostasis and “the fight-or-flight response” . 3. Quotes , Notes and Pearls  The Quotes and Notes feature gives health science related tidbits and facts along with learning hints and inspirational messages.  These quotes and notes will also include professional caveots and pearl of wisdom regarding key to success in academics and career pursuits in the biomedical sciences from the primary facilitator‟s experience. BEPAA Integrated Health Sciences Program 17
  18. 18. Learning Components (3) 4. Clinical Relevancy  The Clinical Relevancy helps bridge the gap between theory and practice.  Real-life clinical medicine analogies and examples illustrate how theoretical material in life science and math applies to the scientific foundation of clinical medicine, re-enforces learning and encourages further study. 5. Professional Profiles  The Professional Profiles describe a variety of health professions, and include informational documents that serve as a portal of entry to detailed online resources in healthcare professions. (The cloud Healthcare careers folder has four areas of focus) , Including Allied Healthcare professions, Nursing , Medical Technology and Physician, Surgeon and Psychiatrist (M.D.) *N.B.-The learner is encouraged to visit the healthcare careers folder to discover health careers and opportunities that might meet their aptitude and interest. ------------------------------------ *Latin phrase nota bene , meaning note well. It is used to emphasize an important point. BEPAA Integrated Health Sciences Program 18
  19. 19. Learning Components (4) 6. Pop-Quiz and and Review  The Pop- Quiz and Review at the end of lessons facilitate group participation, reinforcement of learning, global reflection. 7. Video-Animations (all clips are professionally produced evidence-based medical science presentations.)  This component is most critical to the learners appreciation of the richness, fun and long term reward of the learning experience, particularly for those with a desire to pursue a career in the healthcare industry.  The curriculum cloud folders are organized into numerous 1 to 5 min. video clips|animations.  Topics include molecular and cell biology, anatomy/autopsy cases (45 min. each), physiology, pathophysiology and pathology, microbiology and immunology, biochemistry and pharmacology, that reinforce material learned in the classroom. N.B.-The learner is encouraged to view all video clips corresponding to lecture topics provided as to receive the most out of this enrichment program. BEPAA Integrated Health Sciences Program 19
  20. 20. Learning Components (5) 7. Full-Color Illustrations and Photos (textbook)  Full-color illustrations and photos help clarify the lectures, classroom discussions text and visually reinforce concepts and mechanism.  Cartoon graphics support learning through humor. FOR SUPER-LERNERS Chapter Reviews in the Book  The Chapter Review section of the primary text includes review questions, a real-life issues, a applications section, and suggested additional learning activities. This combined review approach helps learners assess their understanding of the unit/ chapter material and develop a health science mind-set and higher order thinking skills, in addition to enhancing their creativity and critical-thinking skills.

  21. 21. Module I Anatomy and Physiology Rational:  This course of study leads-off with anatomy and physiology because you will be dealing with the human body in your chosen health profession.  Also, having a fund of knowledge in anatomy and physiology will facilitate the your understanding of the examples used later in the chemistry, math, and medical microbiology modules.
