Interactive video lesson plan for: Jeffery's Story 3

Activity overview:

I was scared. I didn't know what the scanner was going to show inside of me. I lay on a narrow bed, and then they put a weird contraption on my chest. They said it was a coil, but it didn't look like any coil I'd ever seen. Then I put headphones on, the machine whirred and I slid into this long tube. There were lights inside or it would have been really creepy. I stopped moving. All I could hear was some squeaking. Then suddenly it started making a lot of noise. It sounded like someone was banging the outside of the tube with a hammer. They said the noise was the magnetic field being changed around me to take the pictures. But they played some wicked R&B and that made me feel better :) I was out of there before I knew it. But I still felt funny inside. Was that the magnet or just my nerves? Wasn't sure what was comin next. Before I left they showed me some of the images. It was cool to see the 3-D pictures of my heart on a computer screen. But also weird. It was MY heart -- the main thing that kept me alive. The thing that helped me on the football pitch. There it was -- on a screen in front of me.

I worried about whether they would be able to fix me or not. Looking at those pictures kind of made me think of myself like a machine. Like one of my robots. Would they be able to fix me? The pictures stayed in my head.
