In this one-time class, students will get a private dissection lesson (dissecting with the teacher) on the specimen of their choice.

Class experience

Students will be able to name standard dissection tools.
Students will be able to perfect dissection techniques.
Students will be able to observe the internal and external anatomy of the specimen they are dissecting.
I was a middle school science teacher for 10 years and in that time, have lead hundreds of students through many dissections including the hot dog, earthworms, clams, crayfish, and sharks. In my college Zoology class, I was the only student to successfully extract the entire spinal nerve of a crayfish that the professor had ever had! I find dissections fascinating and a good stepping stone for any student interested in anatomy, physiology, zoology, or college sciences. 
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
Learner progress is assessed through the dissection technique during class. No tests are given.
Grades Offered
Students will be using sharp tools and must be mature enough, in your estimation, to handle them. Eye-hand coordination needs to be developed enough to hold tools. Parental help may be required in your estimation of your student.
Dissection kit: There are many places to purchase a dissection kit. I will put a few options below but you may certainly purchase them elsewhere. 



You will also need to purchase whatever specimen you choose. Including but not limited to: earthworm, starfish, clam, crayfish, frog, perch, shark, pig, cow eye, sheep kidney, sheep heart, etc,. Those too, can be purchased many places. 


Dissection tray (or something to cut upon like cardboard, a cutting board, or cookie sheet)
Paper towels or other cleaning supplies
Disposable gloves
Goggles if your learner prefers
Dissection tools are sharp and as such, your student must be mature enough to handle them on their own by your estimation. Reproductive organs are also a part of some specimens that students dissect. Though no in-depth discussion of reproduction will occur, these organs are named and their uses are defined during dissection.

I will be on vacation from April 5-20th. I will still be answering messages but may be slower in doing so than usual as some of the time I am gone, I will not have access to wifi/cell phone data.
