  • ACP Human Anatomy and Physiology

    Caught in the Act

    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.
