    The Unit Plan

    This combined unit and daily lesson plan that covers 2-3 weeks (depending on the number of labs you choose to do) of a secondary A & P course. SIOP, gifted, and differentiation strategies are embedded and easily identified throuought. Lessons are differnetiated accoding to learning style, grouping, and language ability. Both content and literacy standards as well as key vocabulary words, essential questions, activating strategies, instructional strategies, and summarizing strategies are included and highlighted. Video links are provided! (Please note that video links are active but may requires access to United Streaming and/or that you be logged into your google account)

    Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    Content Standards:

    SAP3: Students will assess the integration and coordination of body functions and their dependence on the endocrine and nervous systems to regulate physiological activities..

    • Interpret interactions among hormones, senses, and nerves which make possible the coordination of functions of the body.
    • Investigate the physiology of electrochemical impulses and neural integration and trace the pathway of an impulse, relating biochemical changes involved in the conduction of the impulse.
    • Describe how the body perceives internal and external stimuli and responds to maintain a stable internal environment, as it relates to biofeedback.

    Literacy Standards:

    • L11-12RST2: Determine the central ideas of conclusions of a text; summarize complex concepts, processes, or information presented in a text by paragraphing them in simpler but still accurate terms.
    • L11-12RST3: Follow precisely a complex multistep procedure when carrying out experiments…

    Content Objectives (TSWBAT):

    1. List the functions of the nervous system and explain the structural and functional classifications of the nervous system.
    2. Define central nervous system and peripheral nervous system, and list the major parts of each.
    3. Describe the structures and functions of neurons and neuroglia.
    4. Describe the general structure of a neuron, and name its important anatomic regions.
    5. Describe the composition of gray matter and white matter.
    6. Classify neurons according to structure and function.
    7. List the types of general sensory receptors and describe their functions.
    8. Identify and indicate the functions of the major regions of the cerebral hemispheres, diencephalon, brain stem, and cerebellum on the human brain model or diagram.
    9. Name the three meningeal layers, and state their functions.
    10. Compare the signs of CVA with those of Alzheimer’s disease; of a contusion with those of a concussion.
    11. Define EEG, and explain how it evaluates neural functioning.
    12. List two important functions of the spinal cord and describe its structure.
    13. Describe the general structure of a nerve.
    14. Identify the cranial nerves by number and by name.
    15. Describe the origin and fiber composition of ventral and dorsal roots, the spinal nerve proper, and ventral and dorsal rami.
    16. Name the four major nerve plexuses, and describe their distribution.
    17. Identify the site of origin, and explain the function of the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of the nervous system.
    18. List factors that may harm brain development.
    19. Describe spinal bifida, anencephaly, and cerebral palsy.
    20. Explain how brain size and weight declines with age.
    21. Define senility and list possible causes.

    Language Objectives:
