Salamu Alaikum Students,


My name is Sister Mariama and will be your Health Science teacher! Welcome to your Health Course. I am excited to be your new teacher. I am detail oriented so please feel free to let me know if you need clarity on a concept or topic. We need to do some catch up since we are staring the course now, so do not be overwhelmed by the course objectives as some terms you might not be familiar with. I will be sure you guide you through this course as we learn the important concepts of Health. We will have a fun and informative school year as we delve into Health. I will post most of your course materials on the school’s website so please dutifully check it every day for any updates.

Group Case Study Presentations

You will be given a list of Medical Case Studies to choose from during the end of your 1st marking period. This project will be due at the end of the 3rd marking period of the Fall Semester. The reason I want to do this, is so that you can go beyond the spectrum of science become better at public speaking as well as learn the skills, familiarity and experience you need to properly present a topic to an audience. I plan to invite the Principals to attend and pop into a few of the presentations at the end of the Term. In two weeks, I will post your groups and the cases you chose as a group to this page as well as your instructions and an outline for your presentation.
