ACP Human Anatomy and Physiology
Students are shown working on their tissue portfolio, which is comprised of 20 different human tissue samples from the epithelial, connective, muscle and nervous tissues. They are locating them in the microscope, drawing what they see, and comparing and identifying nucleic and other cell organelles in the samples. The students are also taking pictures of the samples to make Quizlets
from which to study. Students will have a lab practical over the various tissues and organelles. Digital Photography
Students warmed up to their cameras at the start of the Digital Photography class through a St. Joe Angels-themed scavenger hunt. Students chose the word "St. Joe" or "Angels" and photographed dozens of objects and parts of campus to represent their letters. They chose their best photo for each letter, then edited and compiled them into one document using Adobe Photoshop.
Digital Photography students learned about point of view, specifically bird's eye, worm's eye and eye level. They captured 35 or more photos showing varying degrees of the three points of view and are discovering how it can dramatically change their photography. Computer Science Applications
Freshmen in Computer Science Applications are learning to manipulate their Spheros Robots through code.AP/ACP Biology
AP/ACP Biology took part in a field trip to the Litzsinger Road Ecology Center in early October. They met up with 5th graders from Marian Middle School to teach them about the life cycle and ecological interactions of monarch butterflies. The 5th graders had the opportunity to teach them about the monarch migration. Seniors Danielle Hall, Maggie Keusenkothen, Marge Kovac and Natalie Mispagel and CC Shipley showed the middle schoolers the live samples of larva, chrysalises and adults, which they brought to tag and release.
