Welcome Back! We will kick off this semester with a discussion of the endocrine system and its related organs and disorders. I have include the complete notes handout for the unit. You will notice I have posted which sections of the notes are due ahead of time. You should have the section completed on the assigned day so you can participate fully in the class discussions and activities. I have also included some study diagrams that will be used in class. To start the semester we will learn some suturing techniques and then start the endocrine system on Monday. Make sure you have the appropriate notes section completed for Monday discussion.

*** For Thursday bring to class an old sock you can cut up and an empty plastic bottle about the size of a water bottle or sports drink.

I know some of your cried when you heard school was cancelled because you were missing tests and a competitive game of Grudge Match!!!! Here’s what we are going to do. On Monday during then study hall period from 7:55-9:15 you have the option to come in and take the Newton’s Laws test or Integumentary test to improve your grade. If you do not choose to come in that’s fine, but your grade will stand after I put in the one more lab for Physics and one more daily assignment for A&P. I will add the Extra Problem points scheduled for both classes on Friday to one of your previous tests (I hope your are smiling right now). I will do my best to get both of those assignments in by Saturday so you can see your grade and make decisions for Monday. I will be at school at 7:30 if you need to start earlier because you have another test to take in another course. You will have the normal 45 minutes to complete the test. I hope this helps you out.
The smile you make when your teacher gives you extra points cause everyone’s got the flu

We are close to our break! We are wrapping up the integumentary system with infections, disorders, cancer and burns. We will test on Friday. We will still do the suture activity but we will do it when we return from the holiday. I think an extra day reviewing the material will serve us well. We will still do extra problems for the test, we will just do it before the test on Friday morning, so you don’t have to come up to school next week early.

Anatomy Week Ahead: 11/27-12/1


The Smallpox case study questions (#1-8 with question 8 being 1 paged typed response) are due Monday 11/27 as well as your 1 case study disorder over lymphatic system disorders. Here is a hint for your case study: Think Lupus, Allergy, Cancer? IBS or Chrons Disease. We will begin our study of the integumentary system (aka the skin) this week. This will be the final unit for this semester. We will cap off this study with a suturing activity you will enjoy. We will also learn about the appendages and structures of the skin, rare and unusual disorders, cancer, and burns. We will also learn about transdermal drug delivery, an effective method of delivering certain medications, the tattooing process, and how your wounds heal. Lots to learn and do, and I know we are all itching for some Christmas movies, cookies, time off! Get your study group schedule planned 😉
This week we will do a Ted ed lesson, so if you don’t remember your account or you don’t have one look at the following handout to sign up. You will need to sign up and create your account by Thursday or you will not be able to submit your work.
