2022 Health Science WISELEARN Resource List (spreadsheet) - Do you have a topic that you struggle to find information or activities to engage your students with? This list provides educators with a wealth of activities and information that support most of the Health Science standards. Each provides an active link, description, goal of the resource, and a video explaining the resource.
CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES AND LESSON IDEAS
HOSA – Future Health Professionals is pleased to provide “on-demand” lessons for HOSA Advisors with a desire to connect HOSA Competitive Events with classroom curriculum. The opportunities began as a response to the change in the classroom setting encountered during the COVID-19 Pandemic, but continues to be an excellent option for Health Science instructors to use in their classroom. From classroom activities, links to websites, alumni sharing how HOSA and Competitive Events prepared them for their future careers, lesson plans, video lessons, what HOSA event is right for the member, and engagement strategies; the “on-demand” page meets the needs of both HOSA Advisors and members.
The website is updated monthly and aligns with the Competitive Events annual topics. A brief video summary about this page can be found HERE.
