This 2 period, 34-week Anatomy and Physiology course covers everything about the human body. Students will perform labs, view numerous histological slides under the microscope, and perform dissections in order to understand all the body systems. Students will have weekly written work and watch youtube videos that provide additional help in understanding material.
The first class period will be primarily lecture, group work, independent practice, and written work.
The second period will be laboratory work. The state of Tennessee requires that all classes must have a minimum of 40%t of class time devoted to lab activities. This Anatomy and Physiology class fills that requirement. Students will observe epithelial tissues, muscle tissues, skin, brain, nervous tissue, bone, blood, blood vessels, and many other slides under the microscope. There will also be labs where students test their blood type, test osmosis, stain tissue, test antibiotic resistance, and many other activities. Students will also dissect a cow eye, sheep brain, sheep heart, pig kidney, pig stomach, and fetal pig. Students who do not want to participate in dissections can watch or opt to stay home for that period and do an online alternative.
