Courses I teach:

Human Anatomy and Physiology

This yearlong elective course is designed to provide students

with the opportunity to gain insights into the priciples

of anatomy and physiology, primarily in human terms.

The relationship between structures and functions will be

emphasized. Instruction will include decision-making

problems and the applicationthat new fi ndings give rise to

in the sciences. The objectives of this course are for the

student to have a solid understanding of the major topics, to

communicate their knowledge orally in presentations to small

and large groups, to communicate their knowledge and analysis

in written reports and essays, to perform lab experiments in a

safe, accurate and efficient manner, to observe and describe the

experiment, and to summarize and support their conclusions.

The major themes of Anatomy and Physiology will include body organization, cell structures and functions,tissues and membranes, and the major systems of the body:integumentary, skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, nervous, respitory, endocrine, digestive, lymphatic, immune, and reproductive. Independent research on selected topics in each system will be required. Additionally, a Job Shadow Project, with written and oral report and documentation, is included in the course. A variety of clinical situations are explored with each body system covered.



Honors Biology

This course provides an introduction to the major fields of

biology. Students will investigate common characteristics

among the millions of organisms on this planet, as well as

some of the unique features organisms possess for survival. A

solid understanding of chemistry, organic molecules and some

biochemistry is assumed from the successful completion of a

year of chemistry. The major themes of biology will include

scientific methods, the structure and function of cells, intra and

intercellular processes, taxonomy, evolution, genetics,

ecology and human biology. Students electing this level of

biology should be highly motivated and organized. Note

taking skills, consistent laboratory procedures, the ability to

learn from text and journal readings and careful attention to

all assignments are essential for success in this class.



CP Biology

This course provides an introduction to the major fields of

biology. Students will investigate common characteristics

among the millions of organisms on this planet, as well as

some of the unique features organisms possess for survival.

A solid understanding of basic chemistry is assumed from

the successful completion of a year of chemistry. The major

themes of biology will include scientific methods, the structure

and function of cells, cellular processes, taxonomy, evolution,

genetics, ecology and human biology. Application of biological

concepts, laboratory procedures, understanding of current

issues in biology, organization of notes and lab reports are

integral parts of this course.
