DISCUSSION 1: FH
It has been said that everyone has a story. These stories can be about anything from heart-wrenching tales of love lost to nerve-racking arguments in a grocery store parking lots. No matter the subject matter, we tend to think that our adventures are the most enthralling events in the history of mankind…until the next big thing happens. The assignment for this week gives you the opportunity to tell your story, to write a narrative essay about some pivotal event or moment in your life that changed you in some way or taught some valuable lesson from which you think a reader might benefit. Before sending this story out for the world to see, it can be highly beneficial though to take a look at it before submitting it to try determine if it is really as engaging and useful as you think.
So, for this week’s discussion, address the following questions.
- What is the topic of your essay? Did you pick one of the essay ideas generated from your interview in the W2 discussion, or did you decide to go with something else? (No, I did use the same idea)
- Why might the reader want to read about this topic?
- What can or should the reader learn from your story? Or, what is the main idea/thesis of your essay?
- Finally, how is your narrative essay topic difficult to develop? How is the story difficult for you to tell? Or, is it?
This is an opportunity to really dissect what you have or are thinking about writing, so be as honest as possible with your responses. That is the best way to help shape your narrative and the controlling idea that should be driving it.

Week 3: The Unforeseen Event
Even with the best of planning, life happens. Similar to last week, you will meet four hypothetical students who are attending ABC University. An unforeseen event happens to each one of them, and this event causes issues in their courses.
Read each scenario and then:
- Determine which student is the most likely to successfully navigate the unforeseen event and be able to remain in school. Explain why you selected that student.
- Explain what behaviors or characteristics were problematic before the unforeseen event and how those behaviors/characteristics may have contributed to a harder challenge for them to navigate.
- Identify the behaviors/characteristics/circumstances that were helpful to the student as the unforeseen event occurred.
DISCUSSION 3: KW
Discuss the rise of non-physician practitioners. Be sure to discuss if these professionals will be able to meet not only the current demand of primary care services, but future need as well.
