Product Description
This mini-lesson works as a center, flipped class activity, journal, or discussion starter. Suitable for health, history, or poetry class and scalable for students grade 3 & up. No prep teaching options set up Ss for interactive & independent work to explore patient-centered care through the lens of poetry and US Civil War History.

Theme: Walt Whitman was an American poet who gained fame only late in life. Perhaps best known for his book of 300+ poems, Leaves of Grass, Whitman also was an active and loyal visitor of ill and wounded soldiers in Washington, D.C. Army hospitals during the US Civil War. In this role, he was at the forefront of patient-centered caregiving, even if he did not call it that. His intent and even some methods apply today.

Goal: Ss consider and respond verbally, in writing, or through art to Whitman's approach to treating patients as people (not as just symptoms or hopeless cases).
