Design an Organ
Created by: Jessica Goninan, Roanoke Chowan Community College
About the Series:
This instructional lesson is part of NC-NET's Creating Integrated Instruction series of faculty-developed integrated projects. Participating community college faculty developed classroom-ready materials that:
- Integrate career and technical content and academic concepts—reinforcing both
- Use real-world scenarios to engage students and make content relevant
- Foster critical thinking, collaboration, and other skills valued by employers
- Encourage instructors to use active, authentic assessment techniques
In this project students will learn the hierarchical structure of organization in the human body; learn the basic anatomy of specialized cells, tissues, and organs; understand how cells and tissues communicate to perform essential functions; utilize the arts and engineering to create a depiction of a fictious organ; and improve on collaboration, video recording skills, and presentation skills.
