M: Biology - Today we started the day by looking at our bacterial cultures from last week. Then we continued learning all about immune response by starting the movie, Osmosis Jones. You received the handout (which I can't post) and you should take notes on the movie on the left hand side of the entry and then complete the questions you can as we go. The movie will take us two days so this is also kind of the homework for tomorrow as well. On Wednesday you will be taking a quiz that will come right off of your worksheet so do a good job!
Medical Biology - Today you watched the movie, "The Shot To Save the World!" the history for the development of the polio vaccine. Unfortunately I couldn't find this movie posted online for those of you who weren't in class. For those who watched it, you should have taken notes on the right side. Tonight at the bottom of your notes I want you to find out what "Herd Immunity" is and explain it. Don't just give me a definition, explain it with an example!
T: Biology - We started Osmosis Jones yesterday and hopefully we finish it today. Tomorrow we will take a quiz on the movie and how it is analogous to an immune response in a body. Please make sure that you have completed all of the review questions from the worksheet and possibly the extra credit question. In addition we picked partners for the last regular day party (June 2nd) and selected our food topics. The handout with the details are below. Start thinking about how you will display this information!
Medical Biology - SO we didn't quite finish the video on the Polio vaccine. We'll finish this today and then try to get through our follow up documentary called invisible threat. Tonight I need you to find out which vaccinations are required for school and why. This goes at the bottom of the left hand page we took notes on. Today you also selected your partners for the final regular day food party, start thinking about what you will create to share.
W: Biology - Today you finished the movie Osmosis Jones....or I think we will. The quiz will be tomorrow so make sure you have researched each answer thoroughly. Also, do you have your party food worked out with your partner?
Medical Biology - So today we watched the movie Invisible Threat. You took some notes and it was interesting to see how people are guided by their emotions. Science though is a very different thing. Tomorrow we'll have a discussion about this, but in preparation for this discussion I want you to watch (no notes) the following video: Why People Believe Weird Things: https://www.ted.com/talks/michael_shermer_on_believing_strange_things#t-244388
Th: Biology - Today you had your Osmosis Jones quiz and then later we discussed real immune response and how to enhance it in your own body. Tomorrow you need to bring your text book to be turned in, and you need to get your parent input (but this is due on Monday). ...Don't forget about the food project!
Medical Biology - Yes, this is video week! ...or at least it feels this way. Tomorrow we will start the final piece of instruction: The Cradle to the Grave, a video that shows the physiology of the body from birth to death. In preparation for this I would like you to watch the following video on animals aging:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7m8QlSPP7t0&feature=em-uploademail As you watch this video I want you to make a list of the various animals it talks about, place them in order of shortest life span to longest, and then insert humans into that list. Lastly, describe the reasons for this variation in life span. Don't forget to bring your textbook to be returned, and get your parent input on your notebook. The parent input is due on Monday.
F: Biology - We are down to Crunch Time! Today we watched the final video on vaccines and those who chose not to use them. We have wound down our studies of the immune system and will now prepare for the final. This weekend I only need you to get your parent input.
Medical Biology - Only one short week left!!! Today we started a reflected piece that will go along with the movie we'll be watching in parts called, Cradle to the Grave, a journey through the physiological changes we encounter through our lives. This weekend, I just want you to get your parent input completed. Next week we'll finish the movie and prepare for our finals.
