INDIVIDUAL STUDENT TEACHING PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS
The purpose of the Teaching Project assignment is for students to learn how to develop and evaluate a health teaching presentation. Think about how you would design a “live” teaching presentation you would conduct on a college canvas. This could be done through a variety of settings, including a health fair format, poster presentation, or brief teaching session. For this current semester, this presentation will NOT be presented within the community setting.
Students will select a topic they feel is timely and appropriate for college learners on a university campus such as UTA. They will develop 2 SMART objectives, select 2 key points with rationale, reference Healthy People 2020, and create a plan to evaluate whether their 2 SMART objectives were met. This information will be recorded on the Project Submission Form in a maximum length of 3 pages.
The following information must be included on the Project Submission Form for this assignment. Students should not submit a formal APA style paper with title page, etc. The form should follow proper sentence structure and grammar and can be single- spaced. References for the Key Points (refer to grading criteria) should be included on page 3
