Case Study Scenario
A 35-year-old woman presents to the primary care office with a history of nasal congestion that has worsened over time and recurrent sinus infections. She considered herself healthy until about 12 months ago when she began experiencing rhinorrhea, sneezing, and nasal stuffiness that “seems to never go away”. She noticed that her rhinorrhea greatly improved when she attended her family reunion on a two-week Caribbean cruise but returned after being home a few days. She lives with her husband and 5- year-old child. They have two household pets: a dog that has lived with them for the last 4 years and a cat who joined the family 1 year ago. Upon exam, the NP observed eyelid redness and swelling, conjunctival swelling and erythema, allergic shiners (lower lid venous swelling), Allergic crease (lateral crease on the nose) and inflamed nares.

ning was my first priority. As I mentioned early, I have had quite a lot of teaching experience and felt confident that I could successfully plan my lesson and its activities . My teaching style has been shaped by various teaching experiences. For three years I taught English classes and used the classroom as a laboratory to try a variety of different teaching styles and methods. I found that I enjoy leading discussion and prefer to have students present what they know to the class. I think the most important thing to start with in preparing for the assignment is finding out what kind of teaching demo I will be giving . Demos can take a few forms. Of course ,I chose the demo which is given to a group of faculty acting as students. Then, when I started to prepare for my teaching demo, the idea of the lesson and the skill I am going to choose came to my mind quite quickly because in my opinion , the preeminent thing in teaching is creating a livable environment to the students and also I wanted to impress Madam Mazanh and I sought to show her that I have good experience as a teacher . I have decided a lesson about character adjectives and my focus was on speaking and vocabulary .My lesson was intended for upper-intermediate high school language class, covering 45 minute period .Luckily Madam Maznah gave us the format that we have to follow in writing our lesson plan which I personally was so comfortable with. I chose speaking skill for the reason that I sought my teaching demo to have more language and to make more fun .At first I thought that the group teaching demonstration would be easy, especially because I wanted to do something dealing with verbal communication .however ,the process of working with adults and pretending they are teenagers was a challenge. It got to the point that more than stop seeing them as my classmates and seeing them as youngsters. I have in my lesson three stages pre –speaking, while speaking and post- speaking as well as homework part. The time given for the lesson was to cover three activities during 45-minute demo, but the class may need less time than I anticipate because Madam Maznh asked us to draw to a close everything in 20 minutes ,therefore. I have tried to shorten my activities and my demo to finish on time .>GET ANSWER
