T-SCORE Teacher Developed Units

Review the teacher-developed health science created during the T-SCORE Summer Institute. These units provide students with learning experiences that grow their interest and knowledge about the health sciences.

We Are the Change

How can we improve socio-economic and health outcomes in our community?

Chance the Researcher

How can we help the community overcome the probability of poor health outcomes?

Nurturance & Resilience

What do students need to thrive?

Leading the Way to Better Water

Is our water safe to drink?

Clean Air Project

How does asthma affect the teenage body?

Infant Mortality

How does one’s lifestyle and community affect the health of an unborn child?

Capstone Introduction 

How do social determinants of health and physical health affect mental health?

Health Disparities for Principles of Biomedical Science

How does mental health affect physical health?

Health Disparities for Human Body Systems

How does mental health affect physical health?

In these units above, T-SCORE teachers ask scientific questions within the context of their students’ everyday lives and to build their knowledge of health science skills and career choices. By infusing local community research and health disparities knowledge into their lessons, teachers connect students with the health realities of their communities and to provide them with tools to help improve health differences across counties and in their particular neighborhoods. Ultimately, these units provide students with learning experiences that grow their interest and knowledge in the health sciences.

Below, you will find the resources for the units created by our T-SCORE Staff:
