For this benchmark, students will research a Native American community’s culture, oral tradition, religious texts, historical background, and current beliefs and practices. It is advisable to visit the Native American community or a museum that would contribute significantly to the research. If possible, interview a Native American leader from the community or a museum expert about that community.

In a 20-25 slide presentation, include the following:

  1. Name of the Native American community and the historical religious beliefs and practices of that community
  2. Significance of historical beliefs and the related social, cultural, and theological practices
  3. How historical beliefs and religious practices have been influenced by the dominant American culture
  4. Current religious beliefs and practices and how they are seen in the daily life of a typical member of the community
  5. Elements of the traditional religion that a Christian would need to consider when sharing the Christian faith/gospel with a person from this community

Use 3-5 academic resources.

 

Be creative. In addition, create a title slide, reference slides, and slide notes that provide detailed explanation of examples.

 

If you would like to take pictures during your visit to a Native American community or museum, be sure to obtain permission.

An understanding of health care cost, access to care, and quality of care is vital for health care professionals, as is the ability to articulate these issues. For this assignment, students will examine the effects of cost and the issues associated with accessing quality care, both in a historical context as well as the future impact on health care. For this assignment, address the following in 750-1,000 word paper:

  1. Identify the factors contributing to the rising cost of health care. When did rising health care costs become an issue? Why are health care costs continuing to rise? What can be done to address this issue?
  2. Identify the impact that cost is having on access to care. How does access to health care today compare to 10 years ago? Can providers refuse care to those with certain payment methods such as Medicaid? Do you believe that we will have universal access to health care in the future?
  3. Discuss the issue of providing quality care. How much of a factor is cost in determining quality of care? What does the future of health care look like with regard to quality?
