Part of Lesson Plan: Face and eye injuries
Activity Overview / Details
As students sit down I have the Kevin Stevens injury video playing. In the video the announcer mentions that he broke his nose. At the end of the video I ask students what they think his injury was. After a quick survey, I pass out the the short New York Times article in which Kevin discusses his injury. This then leads into the Lecture on facial injuries.
** Alternate: If you don't have the time, or don't want the students to read the article, you can just tell them about his resulting injuries and treatment.
** Another thing that is good to do is to have students identify what was done wrong in the treatment of this player (the doctor was not wearing gloves).
