Anatomy Students Love Histology!

My students need 8 boxes in which to store slides as well as a variety of slides of epithelial and connective tissues.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I'm a first year teacher and I teach biology to freshmen, chemistry to sophomores, and anatomy & physiology to juniors and seniors. The school has about 1000 students from a variety of home situations, and some are bused in from nearby cities. This project proposal is specifically for the anatomy course.

Anatomy & Physiology is a relatively new course at the high school and there are not many supplies. We are working on developing a new curriculum for the class and do not have much to go on - so the sky's the limit in terms of creativity! Students who sign up for the class typically are interested in studying science in college; some want to be doctors, some want to be dentists, and of course there are some who have no idea!

The ultimate goal for the class is to prepare students for material that they will see as a first or second year science major in college. Certainly they will be expected to use microscopes and may be required to take a whole class on histology. This will be much easier to accomplish with slides related to the different types of tissues that are discussed in class! In many cases there is only one copy of a type of slide, and there are a few slides that we don't have at all. Ideally we'd benefit from having a class set so that students can work on an extended project where they have a set of slides that are their "own," and use the set to prepare a histology portfolio documenting their work.

Many of the activities students could potentially complete are very similar to what they may experience in college. Thus by having the slides, anatomy students will be better prepared to succeed as science majors!
