Find the first letter of your last name below and then choose 2 tissue types from the list.
For each tissue type that you choose, create a new post with the tissue type in the title of the post. For each tissue type, do an internet search to find a quality microscopic image (be sure to be following copyright laws, see below) and in your own words:
1. Name the category of tissue (Epithelial, Connective, Muscle or Nervous)
2. Describe the appearance of the tissue. What would you say to a friend about how you recognize the tissue type. It is okay if your way of describing seems silly to you--it might help someone else remember it!
3. Name a location in the body that the tissue is commonly found.
4. Discuss the function of the tissue.
5. List the magnification of the image.
6. List the source of your image as an APA citation and include the URL where the image was found.
Tissues types cannot be repeated until every tissue type on the list has been covered and then you may repeat a tissue type from the list (if you haven't already chosen 2), but you may not use the same image or descriptions as another student. Each post should have a unique image of the tissue that the post is covering and a description written by you in your own words (see first week module for information on plagiarism and syllabus for expectations.)
You can claim your tissues by posting the tissue types you are claiming in the titles of your posts, and then coming back later to post the content in your discussion thread by the due date. Doing this will hopefully prevent two student from working on the same tissue type, only for one to post it a minute or two earlier and the other having to redo their discussion.
If you have a last name that starts with the letters A through M, choose two of the following tissues, being careful to not repeat a tissue type until all tissue types are covered in the list:
Areolar, Adipose, Reticular, Dense Regular, Elastic, Hyaline Cartilage, Fibrocartilage, Elastic Cartilage, Compact Bone, Blood Erythrocyte, Blood Leukocyte (be sure to say which of the 5 leukocyte types it is)
