Career and Technical Education
Introduction to Health Sciences
Introduction to Health Sciences is a semester long class designed to create an awareness of career possibilities in health care and inform students of the educational options available for health sciences and health technology programs. The course can be used as credit towards CTE graduation requirements. Instruction includes beginning anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, medical ethics, diseases and disorders.
Medical forensics involves many aspects of health science instruction including laboratory skills and safety, microscopy, toxicology, measurement, physical evidence identification, pathology, anthropology, entomology, psychology, blood splatter analysis, and career exploration.
Medical Anatomy & Physiology
Medical Anatomy and Physiology (MAP) considers the interrelationships between structure of the human body, the function of these structures, and the biological processes that are essential for proper function of the human body. Students will participate in a variety of lab activities and dissections to provide a hands-on, student-centered, active learning experience. Class discussions, lectures, projects, and readings will also be employed to provide a rigorous, engaging learning experience. This course will provide an excellent foundation of knowledge for students interested in learning about how the human body functions.
Agricultural science considers the many aspects of sustainable food production, including plant propagation, water conservation, soil health, pollination, and pest management. Students will apply information learned in class by participating in several long-term, project-based field experiences, including the year-long maintenance of a garden plot, development and maintenance of a composting system, implementation of a hydroponic system, maintenance of a bee colony, and others.
