Classroom Teacher Resources
This downloadable teacher's guide includes activities and resources to supplement classroom viewing of The Oregon Story: Country Doctors, Rural Medicine, an Oregon Public Broadcasting video program. The Web site and lesson plans can also be used as freestanding tools for exploring wild harvest issues.
The guide includes two units, each containing four lesson plans designed to maximize the educational content of both this Web site and the video program. Suggested activities will help students gain a better understanding of:
  • Unique challenges and benefits of being a rural health care practitioner.
  • Demands and possibilities in health care careers.
  • Inequities in health care received by rural people.
The teacher's guide is available as a single PDF document. (If you can't access the guide, please try downloading a current version of the free Adobe Reader.)
