Watch this YouTube video to understand the background for community health, community assessment and the windshield survey. We will have you do a virtual windshield, but the video helps you understand the process. We have also posted a Windshield Survey guide on D2L too.

If you are having trouble finding the data, try Google. Send this as an attachment in a Word document. In the email, state the group letter (A, B, C etc.), members of the group and give a summary of the time spent on this activity. This email is due Day #1 by 1500 for day students and 2100 for evening students.
Clinical Day 2
This is a group activity. Due to the current Coronavirus concerns, you will have to collaborate with your clinical group members via phone, email, text, Google docs, Skype or any other technology. Please note that you will be doing a self/peer evaluation on yourself and each other for this activity so be sure to work together and share the workload. This is the analysis of your data collection. After you have gathered the data for the questions above, your group will create and submit a voice-over PowerPoint and self-/peer evaluation to the appropriate assignment submission folder in D2L. See Tips for PowerPoint Presentations below. The voice-over PowerPoint & Self/Peer Evaluations are due Day # 2 by 1400 for day students & 2100 for evening students.

Imagine your group is conducting a community health and education fair for these issues. What resources are available, and what resources are lacking?
- Discuss the group dynamics for this clinical activity. Discuss how you worked together.
You must also submit the self/peer evaluation (found on D2L Day 1 & 2 Clinical) on you and each of the members of your group to the D2L submission folder for this activity. Deadline is the same as the PowerPoint.
Tips for PowerPoint Presentations
Use at leas t 24 font, Times New Roman. Anything smaller makes it hard for your audience to see! Avoid scripted fonts….as they can be difficult for your audience to read.
Double-check spelling, punctuation, syntax, grammar. Capitalize only proper nouns! Review the latest edition of the APA Publication Manual for assistance.
Avoid too much information on one slide. Keep it simple.
If you use a source’s words verbatim (copy/paste), you must put in quotations marks and cite them on each slide in proper APA format. Otherwise, it is plagiarism.
If you paraphrase a source’s words, you must cite, in proper APA format, on each slide.
Don’t forget to include any in-slide (or in-text) citations used in your References list.
When using online pictures, select “Creative Commons” items only. You must provide citation for each and every picture used (in accordance with federal copyright laws).
Double-check that any pictures are not covering up text on the slide.
Humor can be effective but be sure it is not offensive or inappropriate.
Some tips on doing voice-over in slide presentation:
- If you are wanting to record your voice at the same time the slides are being presented, then you will need to use a screen recording app such as Screencastify. This will allow you to present the slides as well as record your voice as you do it. You can then share the video that is recorded by the app.
- Here are a few youtube links that might help…..
Using Help feature in Google Slides software. It looks as though adding voice-over in Google Slides can be cumbersome so you may want to use PowerPoint instead.
