Lesson Plan

Don't have Issues, Learn the Tissues!:

This project lesson is designed to allow students to make personal connections between abstract art, photography, and histology of human tissues. As a brief introduction, students explore current topics in regenerative medicine and cutting-edge technology in medical sciences associated with disease treatment and amputee treatment. Students will get the opportunity to survey Impressionist area art and histology slides of tissues. Student presentations will be comprehensive and involve multiple levels of cognitive abilities. This lesson provides a unique way for cross-curricular and interdisciplinary teaching and learning opportunities.
