I am also doubling up on these 2 classes starting Oct 1, any one have any insight about what all is involved in community!
There are five assignments, five quizzes, and five discussion boards. The assignments took a lot of time and work and I honestly was ready to cry sometimes because they were awful and time consuming. It was the class with highest amount of credit hours. I don't know if they changed anything but if all is the same then get ahead whenever possible. Here is a description of what the assignments entailed from my syllabus that quarter:
[FONT= ]Healthy People 2020
: familiarize yourself with the U.S. Department of Health andHuman Services’ [FONT= ]Healthy People project. This activity is non-graded.
[FONT= ]Statistical Health Data for a Community
: review and assessdemographic data for your county, state, and nation. review of epidemiological data related to the [FONT= ]National Health Objective that youhave selected.
[FONT= ]Community Assessment - Windshield Survey
: In this assignment, you will conduct a 45 minute windshieldsurvey of the county where you live.
[FONT= ]Outbreak at Watersedge
: A Public Health Discovery Game: The need for public health professionals has neverbeen greater. This activity is non-graded.
[FONT= ]County Health Department Site Survey and Comparison
: you will conduct a [FONT= ]virtual site visitto your County Health Department or one close to your county and a Health Department in the student’sgeneral geographic area.
[FONT= ]Community Agency Assessment and Interview
: you will conduct a [FONT= ]virtual site visit to acommunity agency to learn about the services they provide and how these services relate to your NationalHealth Objective.
[FONT= ]Community Informant Interview:
you will interview a community informant; that is, an individual who lives withinyour selected community and who is affected by your selected National Health Objective.
I am not sure if the syllabus and assignments will be the same with the semester change but I am sure requirements will be similar if not. Besides these assignments, quizzes and DB posts each week. Hope this helps.
