• Dear Students,

    Welcome to the BEST and most interesting class at Vanguard High School!  I'm so thrilled that you are joining me in this adventure of discovering the wonders of the human body.  This is my 15th year teaching A&P at VHS.  And I know that some of y'all (yes, I'm from the South!) are especially looking forward to dissecting fetal pigs Quarter 4, the reward of surviving the rigor and pace of this course.

    The "official" textbook for this course is Elsevier's Anthony's Textbook of Anatomy & Physiology 21st Edition. However, the textbook that I mostly use is Pearson's Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology by Marieb 9th Edition. 

    These textbooks are not available online , but you can click on this link for an "online textbook."  After all, Anatomy is Anatomy....no matter the textbook!  There are Anatomy apps as well.

    Online Textbook

    The class agenda/lessons/assignments are usually posted by Chapter or Topic so that you can manage your study time and due dates (See below).  Allow for minor changes due to circumstances (e.g. hurricane days) but the schedule should be fairly consistent.  I understand that most of you are involved in many activities, so I will respectfully not give you last-minute "surprise" assignments.  Schedule your study time wisely.  Use a calendar to mark due dates.  I will do everything that I can to help you succeed in this course. 

    I look forward to meeting you!

    Ms. Fagan
