M: Biology - NO School to celebrate Martin Luther King Day!
Medical Biology - No School! remember Martin Luther King today
If you want, learn more on the history channel about this great American! http://www.history.com/topics/black-history/martin-luther-king-jr
ALSO: HASPI has partnered with the City of San Diego, Fire-Rescue Department to put on a two-day camp for female students, ages 14-18. This camp is not just open to those wanting to pursue a career in fire science… girls wanting to learn or enhance skills in leadership, health, and/or fire science are highly encouraged to attend! Please see the attached save-the-date flier. Students can RSVP via this link https://www.sandiego.gov/blog/girls-empowerment-camp.

T: Biology - Last week we learned about how cells are created, and that things can go wrong in the process. This week we'll continue that discussion, but I want you to get a little deeper into this topic of cancer. Today you will work with your group on one of the following topics: 1) Prostate, 2)Testicular, 3)Breast, 4) Ovarian, 5) Cervical, 6) Colon, 7) Melanoma, 8) Stomach, 9) Lung. Each group's topic matches their lab group number.
Before tomorrow you need to make a shared Google Slides document that covers the following: a) description of the cancer, b) the common causes, c) the symptoms, d) how we detect, e) How we can prevent this type of cancer, f) What treatments are used to treat it, g) State the survival statistics, h) What human activities are increasing our risk to this cancer. There are 8 topics that must be covered in your presentation and you may use a maximum of one picture per slide.
All of this must be ready to be shared tomorrow so divide up the work among your group members and finish your part before the class is over. There is enough time if you work right away. OH, AND ONLY USE CURRENT DATA FROM REPUTABLE SOURCES! ...like the American Cancer Society, Etc.
Medical Biology - You guys are going to be doing the exact same as my regular classes today, but with one exception. In addition to the research you will divide up, you will also be sure to use APA citation at the bottom of the pages you are responsible for.
W: Biology - So today you had a chance to see everyone's information on cancers. You identified which were the most difficult to treat, and easiest to prevent, etc. Tonight on the left hand side of your entry I want you to come up with a slogan and design that you and your partners could use to make into a 2 minute (or less) Public Service Announcement focused on awareness of your topic.
Medical Biology - Today you got to reflect on each other's work concerning cancer. We looked at the ones that are tough to treat and those that are easiest to prevent. You and your partners will now, on the left side of your entry, create a slogan and then design a public service announcement that is 2 minutes or less that informs people of the prevention and detection of your cancer.
Th: Biology - Today we discussed what we discovered yesterday about cancers; which is easiest to prevent, which is hardest to detect, and which is hardest to treat. Then you had time to process and make your public service announcement. This is due tomorrow, but make sure that it is less than 2 minutes and preferably about 30 seconds. It's all about awareness. Share the PSA with me once you are done.
Medical Biology - In class today we reflected on your responses to the cancer questions from yesterday. Then we took a bit of time on our PSA's which are due tomorrow. Make sure to share the final product with me. Lastly, we started to find out what other kinds of cellular reproduction there is which brought up the question of sexual reproduction. So tonight I need you to make a drawing of the male reproductive parts on the left, and then the female organs on the right (because they always are right. :). develop three questions based off of these drawings. Feel free to use the picture I showed in class. I've added it as a file below.
F: Biology - Today we looked at the reproductive system because we're learning about the way growth and development occurs. We previously looked at why and how cells reproduce to replace themselves and to help and organism grow, but how about reproducing an organism? This requires a different process. Next week we'll get into that. Today though we got into the part of the reproductive system that let it all happen. This weekend I want you to follow up with any remaining questions that you may have about how these systems work.
Medical Biology - Today we did an overview of the male and female reproductive system. This is important because we continue to work on the idea of why and how various cells are reproduced. But you guys being medical biology we're going to discuss STI (Sexually transmitted Infections) since we're on the topic. And we'll relate this to the effects on the cell. Depending on which group you are in dictated which STI I need you to look up this weekend. 1) Chlamydia, 2) Gonorrhea, 3) Genital Herpes, 4) HIV/AIDS, 5) HPV, 6) Syphilis, 7) Bacterial Vaginosis, 8) Trichomoniasis, 9) Viral hepatitis. You really just need a description of the cause and the symptoms both on the organism level, but also how it affects cells.
This page contains nearly everything that you need if you missed class.
