Fundraising That Works!

Fundraising – that necessary part of teaching and HOSA leadership that makes us all squirm in our seats and reach for the Excedrin bottle. This is not a sales pitch for any product or fundraising idea. New and veteran teachers can learn to use basic marketing principles to create a sustainable fundraising program by building your “brand”, knowing your market, and preparing a new group of students each year to maximize your fundraising results and put “fun” back into fundraising!

Presenter: Theresa Bloom, Little Blossom Publishing and Consulting

Power Up Your Health Science Instruction with Three Comprehension Strategies

Join Goodheart-Willcox CTE National Content Specialist, Mandy Green, to power up your instruction. We’ll identify three higher-order comprehension strategies to power up health science instruction. You’ll experience these strategies as a learner and deconstruct them as an instructor. Be ready to use them in your classroom the next day to increase comprehension and student engagement.

Shock Review – A Life-Threatening Emergency

You may already be familiar with the concept of shock. This webinar will go even deeper and serve as a good review of the various cases of cardiovascular collapse associated with shock. We will discuss the recognition of these symptoms and treatment of seven types of shock. Great information to share when teaching the circulatory system or emergency medicine.

Positive Coaching in the Classroom

“Positive Coaching in the Classroom” takes the coaching approach from our athletic fields/courts and utilizes it in the classroom. We strive to inspire educators to increase their ability to reach all their students through research-based strategies. The goal of these strategies is to teach every student the process of success and give them the best opportunity to be successful in all aspects of their life.

Charting the Course

“Waves” continue to surge in all areas of healthcare. Current healthcare trends have created an increasing demand for passionate STEM professionals. We recognize this need and have created a FREE 6th-12th grade online science/health science resource, uBeats. Our mission is to inspire and expose students to access pathways into healthcare professions and workforce. An overview of uBEATS will be given, examples of modules shown, and a discussion of how to implement and utilize this resource.

Classroom Behavior Management

Teachers go through rigorous training to teach their subject. They may spend countless dollars and hours preparing themselves for their daily presentations. They walk out confident that their training and preparation has adequately prepared them for what is to come. Academically they are ready. Unfortunately, all this training and preparation can be less effective if it does not address a major barrier that stands to block the effectiveness of the teacher. That barrier is DISCIPLINE. The lack of classroom discipline negatively affects the learning environment. There are specific steps to be taken. When followed, these have yielded a more productive learning environment. These will have a positive effect both in and out of the classroom.

Moving Toward Whole-Person Health

Whole-person health is the recognition that our mental and physical health are interconnected and that an illness rarely affects a single body part or system. When you consider that nearly 1 in 5 U.S. adults live with a mental illness, and 6 in 10 adults in the U.S. have a chronic disease, it’s easy to consider how one might impact the other. (NIH, CDC). As educators guiding the next generation of health professionals, you’re in a unique position to both influence learning about health science and impact the health of young people.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the need for whole-person health and emotional well-being to the forefront, and especially with our youth. We will explore the concepts of emotional wellbeing; mental health promotion and substance use prevention and how this impacts health and health outcomes. Learn tips and tools on modeling healthy behaviors that support National Health Science Standard 9: Health Maintenance Practices.

Get resources from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and that work to engage young people in the efforts to promote mental health, prevent substance use, and transform to whole person care.

Tips for Teaching Sensitive Topics in Health Science: Child Abuse and Elder Abuse

Students in healthcare and educational fields share an important commonality: all these future workers will become mandated reporters. Unfortunately, researchers have generally found that most mandated reporters have inadequate training on identifying and reporting child abuse and elder abuse.

Ensuring mandated reporters are adequately trained is essential in promoting positive outcomes for the people they serve. Get ideas for engaging students in these sensitive topics, including tools for creating realistic simulations and role-play scenarios.

Attendees will:
– Learn how to help students understand the fact that they will become future mandatory reporters.
– Get tips and ideas for teaching students to recognize and report the four common types of child abuse.
– Review interactive tools for teaching abuse topics.
– Discover free resources you can use immediately.
