The American Yawp

Rating
0.0 stars

The American Yawp constructs a coherent and accessible narrative from all the best of recent historical scholarship. Without losing sight of politics and power, it incorporates transnational perspectives, integrates diverse voices, recovers narratives of resistance, and explores the complex process of cultural creation. It looks for America in crowded slave cabins, bustling markets, congested tenements, and marbled halls. It navigates between maternity wards, prisons, streets, bars, and boardrooms. Whitman’s America, like ours, cut across the narrow boundaries that strangle many narratives. Balancing academic rigor with popular readability, The American Yawp offers a multi-layered, democratic alternative to the American past.

Anatomy & Physiology Learning Guide – Part I
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This learning guide is for part I of the two-semester human anatomy and physiology courses that support students pursuing programs in a medical or paramedical career, or a degree in physical education. It is cloud-based, interactive, independent of a textbook, and aligned with national standards, Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) learning outcomes, to be perennial and widely adaptable.

There are nine learning modules in the learning guide. Each module is divided into topics aligned with the HAPS learning outcomes. Here is a brief introduction of the components found under each topic.

A Short Lecture: These are written by experienced undergraduate Anatomy and Physiology instructors to give you a brief overview of what you might expect to learn from your Anatomy and Physiology course.

A Concept Map: To visualize relationships and help students dig into ideas and organize their thoughts.

Key Points: A very quick overview of important concepts for the section.

Muddiest Points: Points that have caused confusion for students.

Interactive Exercises: These exercises can help students check their learning.

Students can use the learning guide as the following:

An overview before starting a topic in an Anatomy and Physiology Course
A guide to correct anatomical terminology that underlies the concepts of the course work
A place to review confusing concepts in regular course work
A place to find extra resources for study of concepts that are either understood or are still murky.

The development of this human anatomy and physiology learning guide is made possible with the support of the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA) Open Course Grants. It is created by a group of experienced faculty members at Northern Virginia Community College and reviewed by several members of the Human Anatomy and Physiology faculty at George Mason University.

Anatomy and Drawing
Unrestricted Use
Public Domain
Rating
0.0 stars

This instructive book presents excellent annotated line drawings of anatomical structure for the beginning artist. Explaining the subject in simple terms and with an extensive series of dynamic illustrations, the author identifies parts of the body and demonstrates a wide array of physical activities through his sketches. Following notes on proportion and drawing, chapters cover the human skeleton, head and neck, torso, arm, hand, leg, foot, and musculature. Numerous illustrations depict various views of these structures, movements of the human figure, as well as changes in the relative proportions of features at different ages. One of the best books in its field, Anatomy and Drawing helps demystify a complex subject by enabling students to visualize the muscles and bones under the skin, and covers just about everything a beginner needs to know about drawing the human anatomy.
