My students need multiple human anatomy models in the classroom to effectively learn anatomy and physiology.
I am a new teacher in this small, rural, and poor school and will be articulating courses with the local technical college. In order to articulate courses such as anatomy and physiology, my district must have the required models on hand. My goal is to offer classes geared toward the medical field.
Although I have yet to meet my new students, I am not new to the teaching field.
In my former district, I built a strong science program and gave hundreds of disadvantaged students the opportunity to compete in colleges in the area of microbiology, nursing, medicine, wildlife biology and many other life sciences careers. My new district is without models used to teach the courses I have offered in the past and my goal is to introduce these classes so that my new students (in a disadvantaged, rural district) have the same opportunities as those who attend larger, more affluent districts. This program will provide the building blocks for success in post secondary education in the area of life sciences, particularly those in the medical field.
In order to offer the General Anatomy and Physiology course articulated with our local technical college, my district must commit to purchasing over $20,000 worth of anatomy models that will be checked off a list before the course can be taught. This year, I will be cooking and selling breakfast out of my classroom each day in an effort to raise money to offset the cost of these models. The models required are high end and very expensive, but worth every bit of money and effort. These models will be used to learn and study parts of the body as well as to test their lab skills in this course.
Currently, my new school district does not have ANY models to teach anatomy and physiology.
Up to this point, the students have been using old text books and pictures from the book. My goal is to jump start this project and get these students to the point that they are able to succeed in any college they wish to attend in any field they choose to pursue!
