It can be as small as a lesson or as large as a curriculum. It can be constructed by a user or team of users, and has several features, including:

  • Allowing users to browse every detail of the Learning List
  • Restricting access to assessments and answer keys
  • Sharing the Learning List directly or as a widget on your website

5.2 - Public Health


Students will explore the incredible realm of public health, as they examine various tasks that would be considered work of public health, contrast it with the traditional roles of medicine, and read about 10 great public health achievements of the 20th Century. Students will reflect upon careers in public health and learn the 10 essential functions of public health. By identifying these functions in real examples, students will begin to master an understanding of the scope of public health.
