Educator Resources for Vital Signs

Are you looking to integrate health and wellness topics while supporting robust literacy skills? In Vital Signs, students become the medical director of a medical clinic and make big decisions along the way! Vital Signs combines online gameplay, reading, writing, collaborative activities, and assessment to foster literacy and leadership skills. Each 25-minute game episode focuses on one workplace challenge: a standard-aligned ELA assessment that can only be completed by collecting and analyzing information, considering multiple points of view, and applying critical thinking skills. Included are pre-game lessons to review vocabulary and workplace topics, post-game discussion questions to reflect on decision-making, and a culminating PSA project to explore community activism.
