Orthopaedics In Action (OIA) features stand-alone 45-60 minute lessons appropriate for Grades 7 through 12 classrooms. OIA maps to Next Generation Science Standards and covers multiple Disciplinary Core Ideas and Science and Engineering Practices.
Each lesson comes complete with:
- An interactive lecture, featuring a “case study” of a patient with a real orthopaedic problem. Students must conduct clinical and biomechanical experiments to determine the best treatment. Student worksheets are included, and they integrate the lecture and hands-on portions of each lesson.
- High quality, reusable classroom materials, manufactured by Sawbones. Each lesson comes with enough materials to conduct 2-4 student work groups simultaneously.
- Complete teacher professional development materials, including written lesson plans, student worksheet solutions, and training videos of example lessons and in-class exercises.
