Bloodletting and leeches! This class explores some of the strangest and sometimes horrifying medical treatments. In the process, we learn about how the body works; the parts (anatomy) and function (physiology) of blood and other body fluids. Learners join an interactive lesson using Nearpod.com. Classes are engaging! This includes labeling activities, quizzes, games and discussions on health & disease. An optional study guide will be posted at least 24 hours prior to class. 𝗖𝗹𝗮𝘀𝘀𝗿𝗼𝗼𝗺...
I have over 13 years experience teaching anatomy and physiology, which includes topics (such as wounds, blood, death and drug use) that are sensitive to some learners. At the beginning of class, all learners are made aware that I am open to questions and that the chat is always set to private for any questions or comments. This course is primarily an anatomy class. Sensitive topics such as cannibalism and body modification will be approached from an anatomy-physiology-factual standpoint.
An optional study guide can be downloaded or printed out before class to help the learner follow along in lecture. Study guides can be completed during class time.
