    Classroom Expectations:

     

    1.     RESPECT:  Be kind to ALL classmates, teachers, visitors, ideas, and opinions!

    2.    TRY:  Participate in ALL activities.  You NEVER have to get it right the first time.

    3.    THINK:  You have thoughts, ideas, and opinions.  Use them to the best of your ability!

    Be Successful!!:

    1.     Check the board/class website each day for assignments, labs, quizzes, and tests.  You are responsible for all work that you miss when you are not in class. 

    2.    If you need extra help, I am available at 7:25 before school, during lunch, and after school.

    3.    Spend 10-15 minutes at home each day going over what we have learned in class. 

    4.    Don't get behind.  Ask questions, finish your work on time, and stay focused in class.

    Cell Phones:

    Cell phones are NOT permitted to be seen or heard in the classroom.  The Medical Terminology curriculum is fast paced and requires the students full attention.  Because of this, it is very important that students are not distracted by their cell phones.  Students have access to a laptop computer in class, so there is no need for cell phones in the classroom.

    Homework Policy:

     

    1.  Homework is expected to be turned in on time.

    2.  Late work will only be accepted ONE DAY after the due date.  This is due to the rigorous nature of this course.  Any work turned in after one day will not be counted.

    3.  Absent work will follow the school homework policy.  Students are expected to check the class website for any work that they have missed due to an absence prior to coming to class.

     
    Course Description
     

    Medical Terminology covers medical word parts and how medical terms are formed.  The students will also look at how medical terminology applies to the human body, both the anatomy and the physiology.  An overview of each body system will be covered.  The students will be expected to understand all medical terms and abbreviations related to each of the body systems covered.  Spelling, definitions, abbreviations, and pronunciations are required to meet the requirements of this course.  Special attention will also be paid to the disorders, treatment, and diagnosis for each body system.  The following body systems will be covered:  integumentary, nervous, muscular, skeletal, cardiovascular, urinary, female reproductive, lymphatic, endocrine, special senses, respiratory, and digestive systems.  The students will also be exposed to the organization of the body and the directional terms used to describe the human body.
