Anatomy Schedule

Second Semester Human Anatomy

Mid March...Finishing Cardiovascular Unit and moving on .....

Consistent Learning Intentions:

  1. Learn the anatomy/parts and the vocabulary of the system or organ (microscopic: specific cells and tissues to macroscopic)

  2. Learn the processes involved with the organ or system: general (eleven life processes) to specific.

  3. Learn about how the system/organ maintains homeostasis (negative feedback process)

  4. Learn about how the system relates to/provides for/benefits from other system

(unstated, but assumed, when the system can't maintain homeostasis, a process is irregular, or a part doesn't work, the disease state occurs)

Consistent Success Criteria:

  1. Know the parts and vocabulary involved with a system to 80% accuracy.

  2. Understand the processes involved with systems well enough to write/explain accurately and clearly about them.

  3. Know specific feedback loops within the system and be able to apply the homeostasis graph to at least four processes/parts of the system.

  4. With 80% accuracy, identify what the specific system provides for and receives from other systems. Identify causes of disease, symptoms and signs of disease, and possible cures for disease with 80% accuracy.

Day 5: 2/1/21

Learning Intentions...we are learning about eight more homeostasis graphs (oxygen, carbon dioxide, water, electrolytes, vitamin C, blood calcium, pH, and body temperature) and while we draw them, we are working on summarizing them in sentences...then we'll learn about how our body resists its set point for body fat by watching a video and then we will assess our knowledge of physiology so far and preview our next unit.

Agenda...8 homeostasis graphs, George video, physiology assessment

Success Criteria...8 summaries and drawings, 5 observations about how to change your body, and 80% on working knowledge assessment...

Day 4: 1/28/21

Learning intentions: We are learning about our classmates, about physiology, about negative and positive feedback, and about stuff that can disrupt homeostasis

Agenda: Physiology book club quiz, definitions of positive and negative feedback and how they apply to the homeostasis graph, 2nd homework assignment, eleven life properties quiz and name quiz, point board explanation.

...success looks like:

Knowing what the eleven life properties are, their order, and their definitions.

Knowing everyone's name

Passing your book quiz with the group

Understanding the basics of Bartsch's class.

Day 3: 1/27/21

Learning intentions: We are learning about your textbook, the eleven life properties, continuing to explore human physiology through reading, and getting acquainted with our classmates

Agenda: Notes, text preview with eleven life property rotations, end hour...finish physiology stories...

...success looks like:

Knowing what the eleven life properties are, their order, and their definitions.

Knowing everyone's name

Understanding how the textbook is set up

Having a real-world example of physiological disruption

Day 2: 1/26/21:

Learning Intentions: We are learning about how to set up our Anatomy and Physiology notebooks, how to do weekly homework (especially our homeostasis graph), how to evaluate graphs, how to read for specific criteria, and the five disruptions to our homeostasis and the five features your cells want to keep constant. We will also review and practice names and the eleven life properties.

Agenda: Do Now: Powerband graph...then Weekly homework, homeostasis graph work/notes, The Five! times two. Physiology book club

Success Criteria: I understand how my notebook will be used and help me succeed in this class.

I know how to do weekly homework and where to find the answers to weekly homework

I know how to draw a homeostasis graph and how to identify events that may disrupt homeostasis as well as features that my cells are constantly trying to maintain.

Day One: 1/25/21

Learning Intentions:

Review how to do "A and P"

Revisit Eleven Life Properties

Get to know Co-Workers

Learn a bit about the Scientific Process (law of initial values)


  1. Open Disclosure

  2. Analog Assistant

  3. Powerband work.

  4. Survey and Google Classroom

  5. 11 life properties

  6. Practice...

Success Criteria:

  1. Blue Agenda filled out

  2. Classmate awareness...

  3. Yellow book done

  4. Complete Skepticism towards the powerband...

  5. understand eleven life properties, order and symbols

Old PE standards - could be a Wolff's law project

...also include a 90 second 1 lap run. or 6:30 mile.
