This lesson plan is the fourth in a series of four lesson plans which guide the students through the development of a public health plan. Students will use Needs Assessment (completed through the second lesson plan) and the Public Health Plan (created through the third lesson plan) to develop a logic model and multi-media presentation to present to the class.
A logic model is road map or blueprint that presents a picture of how the public health plan is supposed to work. Effective logic models make an explicit, often visual, statement of the activities that will bring about change and the results you expect to see for the community and its people. A logic model keeps participants in the effort moving in the same direction by providing a common language and point of reference.
This lesson will consist of 3 activities and is intended to assist students in completing their public health plan. In lesson three, students selected an intervention strategy, defined their objectives and identified their strategies (activities) for meeting each objective. Through the construction of a logic model, students will expand on the public health plan by identifying the inputs necessary to achieve the product and desired outcome of each strategy (activity). Each group will present their public health plan and logic model to the class.
