Good day & good learnings at the Saturday midterm. As we discussed, the exams are based on previous year's final practical exams. Now you have a good sense of where you are and where you personally, and the class as a group, need to focus moving foward.
And a productive Backboard Sunday - at the beginning of the day, you hadn't laid a hand on a backboard. Now you can put a patient on a backboard - from each position to leading a team to do so - in a broad variety of situations.
Now we move foward to learn a couple more skills, then more complicated scenarios, then ramp up for the final exams!
