    Course Description:  Anatomy and Physiology Honors covers the functions and structures of the major systems of the human body.


    Class Expectations:  Students are expected to use the resources (class time, office hours, teacher web page, Remind.com, Twitter, etc.) to stay current with assignments and to master the benchmarks that are part of the class curriculum.  Students will participate in all class activities and will complete and turn in all assignments on time.  Students must be in class and dressed appropriately to participate in lab activities.  Cell phones are expected to be off and put away during class time unless given explicit permission for use.  Students are expected to be ready to work as soon as the bell rings.  The BHS tardy policy will be strictly enforced.

    Anatomy & Physiology Honors has a lot of vocabulary.  This vocabulary is essential for the understanding of the content.  Tests and quizzes do not have word banks.




    The study of Anatomy & Physiology requires many lab activities, including the dissection of a cat.  Dissections are mandatory.  There are NO alternate assignments for dissections.




    Absences / Make-up work

    It is your responsibility to stay current with all assignments.  All assignments will be posted on the Mrs. Glisson’s BHS webpage and it is your responsibility to get your make-up work.  Tests and quizzes will have to be made up during office hours.  Most labs and dissections cannot be made up, so attendance is extremely important.  For work missed during an excused absence, you will have as many days as you were absent to get the work turned in.  Late work will receive half credit and no work will be accepted more than 2 weeks after the due date.


    Grading Policy

    Homework  = 10%

    Quiz / Daily work = 40%

    Tests / Projects (including lab reports) = 50%


    Students will receive 2 grades for each lab; a participation grade that counts as a daily assignment and a test grade for the written lab report.  Unexcused absences will result in a zero for the participation grade.
