17 Reading Activity
This assessment builds on course readings and applies them to a real-world context. The assessment was used in a course at College Boréal and is aimed at summarizing the rights of aging persons.
Student Instructions (Course Example)
Scenario – Preparatory Reading
You do more in-depth research on the rights of the aging human in order to prepare for your first staff meeting and increase your knowledge of the human rights of aging people. This research will also allow you to validate your thoughts on the subject.
In order to become more familiar with the subject and to base yourself on facts, you decide to consult the websites and pages below to prepare for the first course session:
- Declarations and Principles of the United Nations (UN)
- Canadians’ Rights
- Human Rights of Seniors in Ontario
- Laws Governing Home Care
- Laws Governing Long-Term Care Homes
- Laws Governing Nursing Homes
Scenario – Activity
Since you joined the Agence Mieux-Vivre, you have done some research and learned about your perceptions of the rights of the aging person. You have had the opportunity to share the results of your research with your supervisor. He congratulates you for having expanded your knowledge by consulting professional and relevant resources and sites. He then asks you to undertake a task where you will summarize the rights of the aging person on global, national and provincial scales.
To accomplish the next activity, use the resources you consulted in the preparatory readings.
Using the table Summary of the Aging Person’s Rights, summarize the rights of the aging person on global, national and provincial scales.
In another document, describe a situation you have experienced (or a situation you have seen in your readings) where there seems to be a violation of the rights of the aging person.
Referring to what you just read and your new knowledge, explain why you believe the rights of the aging person have been violated. Your assignment must include the following:
- Written in point form
- Description of the situation
- Links between your readings and the highlights of the situation to support your opinion that there has been a violation of the rights of that aging person.
- Word processing software (or other Microsoft software)
- Learning platform (Brightspace)
The preparatory activity involved reading in which students consulted all the necessary resources and laws in order to be able to complete the other activities of the course.
