Tools of the Trade
I'm bringing all these items to class tonight because the ESL students are supposed to gain a "competency" of understanding how to take Rx drugs. From my experience on the nurse advise line you'd be surprised how many native English speakers don't know that a teaspoon equals 5 ml. Or, that a Tablespoon is 15 ml. Or that a ml. is the same as a cc. Or even the abbreviation for teaspoon or Tablespoon. The pretty flowered spoons for stirring tea are to show them what NOT to use when dosing. I'm also demonstrating a bottle of eye drops but forgot to put it in the picture.
