Throughout this comprehensive laboratory course, students will explore the human body in an in-depth study of human structure and function. The course objective is to learn about the human body using verbal, visual, experimental, and written strategies. It will include facts about the structure of cells, tissues, and organs and their interaction with each other as the person lives, works, and dies. All systems of the human body are described in their roles in making up the human body. Students will examine current biological health issues using appropriate and effective reading and writing strategies which will be integrated into all aspects of the curriculum along with a comprehensive laboratory experience. This laboratory course covers all of the clear learning targets as outlined by Ohio’s New Learning Standards for Science and Common Core State Standards of English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects.
