Seventh grade students have studied about cells, tissues, organs and organ systems. After teaching this for five years, I realize students do not truly understand the importance of organ placement and how all the body systems work together to provide the needs of that organism. Live organ dissection not virtual dissection cements the information into student's minds and creates a knowledge base not just an understanding. Once students dissect a frog they gain a much stronger respect for living creatures and a greater desire to protect them and their habitat. This proposal is for the 44 students in the 7th grade at Louis J. Agassiz public school in the city of Chicago. This school is a turn-around school, which has been growing since Chicago continues to phase out busing. The school has focused on performing arts and the science program has suffered. I transferred to Agassiz with the intention of building their science program. This is my second year at Agassiz, and I am turning their textbook program into a hands on interactive base. I have seven years experience in education and five years of experience as a professional scientist. I am the purchase of 24 bullfrogs and a dissection manual. This will cover one frog for demonstration and the rest for pairs or single students to work on. Again, virtual dissection only gives children an insight, however, actual dissection makes the information real. Students make stronger connections and actually build respect for other living creatures.
