DRAFT - Phase 4: The Grant - DRAFT


During this phase of the health unit will research their health topic and create a public service announcement.

Purpose of Phase 4

The purpose of this phase of the Health Unit is the following:
  • Identifying and developing a solution to your health issue,
  • finding Health agencies to support the work,
  • learning about how health agencies fund projects,
  • developing technical writing skills,
  • learning to critique data graphs, and
  • completing an accurate, compelling application to fund a project related to the health issue.

Overview of Grant Phase

First
Students are given a grant application and begin to formulate a plan on how much money they will require for a solution to their chosen community health problem. Students should contact the agency that will supply the resources they will need. The students may role-play the organization. Other options are to actually service the community themselves or through the organization.* (See “fitness center” example in the physics extended activity.)

Second
Students must agree upon a detailed plan for solving the community health problem and a rationale for the specific amount of funding they are requesting.

Third
Students fill out the initial application for the grant. If the application is accepted (it must be perfect), students begin to plan their presentation to the panel.
