Foundations of Anatomy and Physiology 1 is the first of two semester-long lab courses introducing basic anatomy and physiology. The first unit covers directional terminology and those aspects of chemistry and cellular biology that learners must master to study anatomy and physiology. It also instructs learners on how to use lab equipment safely. Then, they learn about the following body systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, and endocrine, with separate lessons on the brain and the senses. Learners make connections to their health and the prevention of disease for each body system studied. They develop the skills they need for college-level work and careers in the health professions as they conduct research, complete wet labs, and participate in a wide range of group activities.
PLANNING TOOLS provides essential information to guide course implementation, including scope and sequence, detailed lesson plans, semester planning outline, course updates, and project overview. Several courses offer free online resources with hyperlinked URLs to enhance blended, synchronous, and asynchronous learning. The scope and sequence guide the resource selections to ensure the content aligns with lesson topics. The online resource collection includes course outlines, modules, lesson plans, videos, projects, and articles.
FOR LEARNERS: Did you know that in 2030, 85% of the jobs are not in existence yet? So, how can what you are learning in school today possibly prepare you for an unknowable future?
The answer is simple! You do not stop learning just because you graduated from high school. You must embrace the concept of life-long learning to thrive in a highly tech-enabled and information-driven future. Your skillsets are less about what a teacher “poured” into your head and more about exploring issues and topics about which you are passionate. In the future, employers will not be as interested in your grade point average as compared to the initiative you took to extend your knowledge.
Using the Pandemic Vulnerability Index from the National Institute of Environmental Health Science (NIH), students examine vulnerability to the disease at the county level from multiple perspectives, including infection rate, intervention measures such as social distancing, testing, and social determinants, such as health disparities associated with race and socioeconomic status.
