Our Occupational Therapy department offers a course entitled "Medical
Terminology" which is described in the catalog as "An introduction to the
basic vocabulary of relevant medical terms for occupational therapy
practice, including stems, roots, pronunciation, and correct usage."

Subject: Vocabulary for Content Areas

Do any of you offer vocabulary units of study, designed to complement or
support general education courses? For example, do you offer a course
along the lines of "Vocabulary Development for Biology"?

If you do, and if you're willing to share your ideas, please contact me.
Also, if you are aware of publications or computer programs designed
around this concept, I'd appreciate it if you'd pass along that
information, too.
