Asthma Learning Tool for Teachers

Asthma Learning Tool for Teachers in English

Asthma Learning Tool for Teachers in Spanish

There is a student with asthma in almost every classroom. Teachers can help keep these students safe if they know some basic facts about asthma.

This version of the Asthma Learning Tool (ALT) was designed to help teachers learn the basics of asthma and how to identify students having an asthma episode.

To learn how to identify the severity of an asthma episode, that is, students who need immediate medical care and those need care within one to two hours, see the Asthma Emergency Guide.

Most of the questions in the ALT are based on individual pages of One Minute Asthma, 7th edition. Teachers should print the questionnaire and answer as many questions as they can before reading One Minute Asthma.

After completing the questionnaire, check your answers and look up answers to questions you missed in One Minute Asthma. If you don't have a copy of One Minute Asthma (order here), you can print the Asthma Learning Tool for Teachers answer sheet in English or the answer sheet in Spanish.
