Registration NOW OPEN!!
Mrs. Karen Garza
11th-12th, college preparatory - 2 hours
Tuesdays, TTC, 2854 campus, Montgomery
2:00 - 4:00 pm
Students are given an outline of course work required to complete as school work, which includes the student correcting and grading work they then upload on School Work platform according to directions, so grades may be posted. Students are also responsible for writing up their lab reports to cover labs and activities, then post them on our School Work platform for evaluation.
There are 16 modules, which translate into 32 weeks of work to cover in 30 weeks, so students have a reading and work assignment to complete prior to our first class in the Fall as well as in the Spring semester.
Notebooks are a major part of the course. Student's course work is to be filed weekly.
Advice – Do not get behind!
Grading focuses on following directions and on-time full completion of assignments in order to help teach a valuable life skill that also assists students in their future academics.
This and more are detailed at our Student & Parent Orientation.
Please note an online platform is used for assignments and communication between the teacher and student, so access to a computer and printer are essential to this class.
Anatomy is hands on with lots of dissections, microscope labs, & Coloring Book Exercises.
It is science at its best. Dissections are often exploratory in nature, so students are expected to be familiar with dissection procedures. Dissections for this course include a cow’s eye, a pig’s heart, and a fetal pig. Additional dissections are added to enhance the curriculum.
The text covers both the anatomy & the physiology of the human body’s 11 organ systems in detail. Labs cover topics such as salivary glands, epithelials, the dermis and epidermis, hair follicles, bone tissue, skeletal muscle tissue, neurons and neuroglia and much more.
The Coloring Book Exercises are probably the most important 'lab' exercises for the student to perform and can be time intensive. All coloring is done at home and the coloring book is assessed and graded each semester. It is vital that students complete assignments. This is the same coloring book used in many universities.
The focus is mastery of the subject and the best way to learn is to do; therefore, the course also incorporates two outside projects that count twice; one as a project grade and one as the module test. Students receive a Project Packet in advance, which includes the scoring system and an outline of what work to accomplish. Both of these projects are in the Spring semester.
Looking forward to our exciting adventure as we do this together!
Apologia curriculum The Human Body, 2nd edition
Book set (text + solutions manual);
PLUS Items on Supply List
Prerequisites: Biology & Chemistry
If a student has not completed biology & chemistry, approval must be obtained from the teacher prior to registration.
The focus of this course is mastery of the material. The best way to accomplish this is by the student handling the material correctly as many times as possible, so everything is open book and students are GRADING and CORRECTING their own work in RED. Rather than turn it in, work is posted online. In order to maintain enrollment, students must complete these weekly assignments. Following directions is rewarded. Not doing so is penalized.
No late work is accepted without PRIOR approval and parental involvement.
Two absences are allowed each semester without penalty against the lab grade, but school work assigned to be done at home is still due according to the set schedule.
The vital component of the course grade evaluation is following instructions and keeping work organized.
These details and more are covered at the Student & Parent Orientation.
What is expected is given in writing at Orientation and posted on our online platform. Class time is less this year, so this material is not discussed in class. If a parent or student has questions, first refer to packet given and resources on our online platform, then if needed schedule a one-on-one meeting time with the teacher. Our schedule does not allow for time the day of class.
Please click on Orientation for the date set aside for Orientation at TTC and to learn more.
The schedule for the day is posted closer to August, once classes have made, so please plan on having that day available.
This critical meeting establishes the student’s school year & the parents’ role in it.
Once the schedule is set for the day, a reminder and confirmation is sent out to parents in August.
Reminder: We use an online platform for assignments and communication between the teacher and student, so access to a computer and printer are essential to this class.
This will be a great year, so come ready to learn!
