Assignments for April 27th-May 1st

Well, we are on the home stretch. On one hand, it’s hard to believe it’s almost May. On the other hand, it may seem like May was never going to get here, as quarantine days blend into more quarantine days.
Anyway, hopefully you were pleased with your 4th quarter progress grades. Those of you who have chosen to continue learning and completing assignments have seen a definite improvement in your grades. Keep up the good work! This week we will complete two more chapters in the EMR textbook. Read and answer the “You are the Emergency Medical Responder” prompts at the beginning and end of each lesson. Chapter 18 is “Shock” an is pages 418-424. Chapter 19 is “Bleeding and Trauma” and is pages425-438. Below is the link for the EMR e-textbook:

Assignments for April 13th – 17th

As you know, TUSD is allowing students and parents to choose to accept 3rd quarter grades as semester grades for the final spring semester grade. I hope you will choose to continue completing the EMR assignments I post here because doing so can only help, not hinder your semester grade and it may give you an opportunity to receive EMR certification from the American Red Cross. That certification will depend on your completion of the assignments, your ability to pass the certification exam and your willingness to demonstrate hands-on skills such as CPR chest compressions and using an AED for the CPR portion, and skills like applying splints and using a tourniquet for the first aid portion once the Covid 19 quarantine is lifted. For those of you who choose to complete the EMR lesson assignments and wish to qualify for certification, I will schedule a time next fall with you for demonstrating the skills and taking the certification exams.

For this week’s lesson assignments, please read Chapter 14 “Medical Emergencies” which begins on page 428 and Chapter 15 “Poisoning” which begins on page 442. Respond to the “You are the Emergency Medical Responder” prompts at the beginning and end of each lesson and email your written responses to me for bell work. Below is the link for the EMR e-textbook.

Hope you all had a blessed Easter with your families. Stay safe and stay healthy!

Assignments for April 6th-10th

First I want to say great job completing last week’s bell work assignments! I have received most of your assignments by email, so thanks for staying on top of reading through the EMR e-textbook chapters and answering the “you are the Emergency Medical Responder” prompts. This week we will have you complete two more lessons and bell works. They are Chapter 12, “Emergency Oxygen” which begins on page 277 and chapter 13, “Circulation and Cardiac Emergencies” which starts on page 290. Read through the text and answer the “you are the EMR” prompts at the beginning and end of the lesson.
Thanks for staying diligent and here’s hoping you all are staying safe and healthy!

Hello THS Sports Med lab students!

Crazy times, huh? Well, we will try to make the best of it. Just know I really miss all of you and miss being in the classroom with you! We will attempt to continue the EMR lessons with the hope of completing the hands-on and test requirements when classes resume. My expectation for all students is for you to read through the information and complete the bell work for two lessons each week, beginning on Monday,  March 30th. The bell work for each lesson is the “You are the Emergency Medical Responder” slides at the beginning and end of each lesson. We will start where we left off before Spring break with EMR lesson 10, “Airway and Ventilation” , (kind of ironic timing, don’t you think?) You can download the entire EMR E-textbook at the following link: https://www.redcrosslearningcenter.org/sfc/servlet.shepherd/document/download/069d0000003vdsQAAQ?operationContext=S1

Lesson 10 begins on page 213. Please read carefully through the text and look at the cool pictures to understand the skills involved so you can demonstrate them when we return, ( fingers crossed! ). Remember to think through the “You are the Emergency Responder prompts at the beginning and end of the lesson. You can either write down your responses as bell work on paper to turn in (at some point ) or email your bell work to me at Michael.boese@tusd1.org. Please complete both lesson 10 “Airway and Ventilation” and lesson 11 “Airway Management” the week of March 30th though April 3rd. I will send you an email with instructions to return to this site for the following week’s lessons.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
Coach Boese

Ps If you are unable to download the link to the EMR E-textbook, email me and I will provide a printed copy of the lessons for each week!
