Using Context Clues to Be the Veterinarian Ongoing Veterinary Science

In this class, students will study one fictional dog or cat emergency or illness case a week and use context clues to identify symptoms and suggestions for vet care compared with real-life vet experience from the author's Be the Vet books.

Class Experience

Students will learn about one specific veterinary case per week but will gain understanding of how a veterinarian decides to best help a sick or injured animal.
I am the co-author of the popular book, BE THE VET. The other co-author is my husband, veterinarian Dr. Ed Blesy.  Dr. Ed wrote the veterinary information based upon his twenty + years of veterinary experience while explaining veterinary terminology for student understanding. This case and treatment are fictionalized based upon one doctor’s experience. It was important for us to write a book where the readers get to feel as if they are part of the experience using the context clues from my stories.

I am also a former certified elementary school teacher and the author of over 25 books for children.
BS in elementary education
MS in educational administration
There is no homework.
*Students will need paper and a pencil/highlighter. *I will upload the story each week to the classroom to be printed off before class. Thank you.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
