• 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

    Q2 Presentation Instructions and Rubric

    • Include the following information in PP: symptoms, diagnosis, causes, treatment, prevention, mortality.
    • See below for more instructions.

    Anatomy Honors Q2 Short Presentation Instructions

    Choose a disease or condition.  You may work in pairs or alone.  One or both students can give oral presentation, but 2 people taking turns works nicely.  Be sure to practice and time your presentation for proper length.

    Choose a topic that interests you, and that you think will interest your audience.  Avoid going into too much medically advanced detail.  We are not doctors.

     The inclusion of personal stories or experiences of family and friends can help to make your presentation more compelling.  If you plan to bring a guest speaker to class, they must fill out a Volunteer form.

    Power Point should be Bullet Points, not an Essay.  Give me a reason to listen to what you’re telling me; don’t put all details in the PP.  The use of pictures, illustrations, tables, and charts is encouraged.  Use LARGE font.

    Include the following information in PP: symptoms, diagnosis, causes, treatment, prevention, mortality.

    Videos may be used but must be less than 1/3 of presentation time. If you need more time, ask teacher in advance so that we schedule it.  It is recommended to check in advance if your PP and video work on the computer in the classroom.

    Absolutely do NOT read from the Power Point.  Use note cards, or a paper, or memorize.  If you’re not sure how to pronounce the vocabulary, then ask someone.
