Reflection Assignments

There will be three reflection assignments over the course of the semester. These assignments will
assist you in self-analysis of your interest in health professions and the associated programmatic
options at Lewis-Clark State College.

Reflection #1: This will be assigned early in the semester. The focus will be on your initial interests
and background.

Reflection #2: This will occur near midterm after the various speakers have visited the class. It will
also involve research of other health professions from http://explorehealthcareers.org.

Reflection #3: This will be assigned at the end of the semester to analyze how your interests have
changed or been strengthened.

Additional details will be provided later in the semester.

Study Skill Assignments

During the latter half of the semester, we will focus on effective study skills for science and math
classes. As part of these presentations, you will be assigned different tasks with the aim of
strengthening your preparation for these rigorous courses. Additional details will be provided later in
the semester.


Attendance

Half of the points in this course are associated with attendance. If you miss four or more lecture
meetings, you will receive a Failing grade for the course.
