Forensic Science 7 will focus on the ways in which medical sciences are used within the broader arena of Forensic Science. We will cover Forensic Pathology, Forensic Odontology, Forensic Serology, Forensic Toxicology, and Forensic Medical Analysis of historical cases. After completing our discussions of these substantive areas, we will work through a mock case, involving multiple "files" which students will need to solve. As with all of the courses in my Forensic Science series, this...
Students will improve their understanding of Forensic Pathology, Toxicology, Serology, Odontology, and Histology. They will also develop a basic understanding of the ways in which Forensic Medical Analysis can be used to determine the cause of death or potential diseases associated with famous historical figures.
I have been teaching Forensic Science for nearly 20 years at the college and high school levels. I also hold two degrees in History, with my Master's being in the History of Science. I have done extensive work on the history of medical science, and have coupled this with forensic science in examining potential medical influences in the lives of famous historic figures.
Homework will consist of reviewing case studies and discussing them in the following week's session, as well as analysis of the mock case materials in the final three weeks of the course.
I use an informal assessment based on the student's discussion and analysis throughout the course.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
While we will be talking about Forensic Pathology, which involves cause of death analysis, I will never use any graphic images or disturbing cases. I am diligent in keeping all of my classes age appropriate.
