Each student will submit weekly applications answering questions based on information covered in the class.
- Application Length– your application should be no more than one page in length. There is no need to create a cover page. There is also no need to include a long header with your name, my name, and the class. That takes up unnecessary space on the page. In the header of the document you can place your name and application number and that should be fine.
- Application submission– all applications are submitted to me via blackboard by 5 p.m. on the Friday of the week they are assigned
- Application Lateness– Any applications turned in after5 pm will loose 25% off their grade. Applications submitted beyond two day’s lateness WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Exceptions to that are one a case by case basis.
- Grammar and punctuation– Submitted a response that is one paragraph in length will result in you loosing 20% off your grade. Proper grammar and punctuation is expected in your responses.
You are entering the final semester of your senior year of study with a major in public health education. The health education/ promotion program at your university requires seniors in their last semester to intern a minimum of 25 hours per week at a state or nonprofit agency.For this capstone experience, you have been assigned to the mayor’s office in a medium-size city near the campus.
During an orientation on the first day, you overhear that one of the tasks you will be assigned will involve meeting with the leaders of several community groups with the goalof creating smoke-free public parks in the city. The smoke-free park concept represents oneof the mayor’s main objectives in her second term in office. You also hear that the mayor is excited to have a health education student intern because she greatly respects the skills that a health education specialist possesses.
The second day you have the opportunity to meet with the mayor, and, in fact, she doesintroduce to you the idea of a smoke-free public park system. During this meeting you discover that she is quite knowledgeable about the negative health effects of second- and third-handsmoke in part because her son, a lifetime nonsmoker who worked in a pub in town (smokingwas allowed in pubs), died last year from lung cancer at the age of 36. At the close of the meeting, the mayor asks you to submit to her your philosophy of health education/promotion so that she can see what approach you might take with the community groups.
Using the model outlined in this chapter, write out your health education/promotionphilosophy. Based on your philosophy statement and given the project that you will be assigned, is the mayor’s office a good place for you to intern to hone your skills? Why or why not?
