Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to identify the structure and function of the main human organs and systems using common medical terminology.
Session One: The skeletal system
	Learning Goals: They will be to Identify the functions of the skeleton, learn about different types of bone tissue, learn about the classification of bones, and identify different parts of the human skeleton
Session Two: The muscular system
	Learning Goals: Be able to identify the muscle structure and function, describe the muscle tone and senses, learn about energy sources and muscle contraction, and identify major muscles of the body.
Session Three: The cardiovascular system
	Learning Goals: Obtain knowledge about characteristics of blood, components of blood including plasma and blood cells, heart and cardiac layers, chambers, vessels, and valves of the heart, cardiac cycle and heart sounds, cardiac conduction pathway, the heart rate, and regulation of heart rate.
Session Four: The endocrine system
	Learning Goals: They will obtain knowledge about the chemistry of hormones, the regulation of hormone secretion, the pituitary gland and its related hormones, the thyroid gland, the parathyroid gland, the structure and function of the pancreas, the adrenal gland and recognize its hormones.
Session Five: The urinary system
	Learning Goals: Obtain knowledge of kidneys, the formation of urine, assessing the kidneys and acid-base balance, learn about other functions of kidneys, the elimination process of urine, and the characteristics of urine.
Session Six: The respiratory system
	Learning Goals: Identify and describe the divisions of the respiratory system, the mechanism of breathing, pulmonary volume,  exchange of gases, transport of gases in the blood, regulation of respiration, and acid-base balance.
Session Seven: The digestive system
	Learning Goals: Be able to recognize different sections of the digestive system, oral cavity, pharynx, esophagus, structural layers of the alimentary tube, stomach, small intestine, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Describe the completion of digestion and absorption.
Session Eight: Nervous system
        Learning Goals: Be able to identify different components of the nerve system, nerve tissues, types of nerve, nerve impulses, spinal cord, and brain, and identify the autonomic nervous system.
Session Nine: The integumentary system
	Learning Goals: Be able to identify different skin layers and learn about the subcutaneous tissue, aging, and integumentary 
Session Ten: The lymphatic system
        Learning goals: Learners study the lymph and lymph vessels; they will learn about Lymphatic tissue and human body immunity.
Homework Offered
If the students have some previous knowledge about the topic and are fast learners then reviewing the materials before the class, completing notes over the material and the comprehension questions should be easy for them. A few multiple-choice questions are meant to confirm the proper comprehension of the material. If the student is struggling to understand then the materials will be more challenging. In that case, I will schedule an additional one-on-one session to explain the main concepts and ideas as well as providing new quiz questions.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I consider a few components to evaluate the students in this class. 1) Their attendance and if they attended every class. 2) Did they complete the multiple-choice and comprehension question and turn them in on time. 3) Did they participate in the group discussion. I will write a report to the parent for how the student did in the class and their assignments. This will be a good indication of well they understood the materials and their future success in school.
Grades Offered
I will provide the necessary reading materials. The student will send me the answers to their assignments and quizzes. For the student presentation at the end of the course, the student will need to create a 3D cell model. Students are not required to purchase any items for their 3-D human body model. I will provide them with the necessary instructional videos and vitual models.
The material contents are appropriate for informed parents and mature students. Content is age-appropriate and focused specifically on the major human body systems without the inclusion of reproductive systems.
Learners will not need to use any applications, models, or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools. I will provide PPT or PFD’s of the material in the class.
