TEACHER to TEACHER
When I first started teaching Anatomy and Physiology, I lacked the one thing most
important for success: a coherent philosophy of what I wanted the students to learn.
All of that changed the first time I picked up Elaine Marieb's 4th Edition
of Human Anatomy & Physiology. From the beginning, I saw a clear and coherent
philosophy guiding the text. I didn't really become an effective teacher until I
understood the importance of working from a consistent philosophy. Elaine Marieb's
work was an important contributor to my development.
There were three themes that emerged from the book that really helped me with
my teaching philosophy: understanding the importance of homeostasis, the relationship
between structure and function, and the interrelationships between systems. In this
text, no concept is more important than homeostasis. A good teacher always wants his
or her students to see the bigger picture, and this text provides many opportunities to
relate homeostasis to other concepts. The Homeostatic Imbalance sections use
diseases and disorders to teach through comparison with the state of homeostasis.
Often, students will have specific questions that I can't answer about a disorder.
This section offers a far more understandable explanation than students can
find through other sources.
The text covers all areas of Anatomy and Physiology in great detail while reflect-
ing the most current research. The level of detail in this book does not mean that it is
difficult to understand. The book is accessible, and once you start reading it, you really
want to keep reading. Often, as I am reading the text, I find myself getting excited
about how I can use it in my class to make my lectures more interesting and relevant.
The support materials will make teaching your class easier no matter what
approach you use. The media manager software allows teachers using a lecture style to
quickly create lessons containing graphics and animations. Teachers who use a more
inquiry-based approach will find the software and supporting material useful in
creating hands-on activities that teach important concepts.
Finally, there is a high level of integration between the textbook and the print
resources and supporting websites. The myA&PTM Website contains a wealth of material
available to extend and connect lessons. The Interactive PhysiologyTM CD that comes
packaged with the textbook has activities of different levels that are appropriate
for either a quick review or more in-depth of coverage of the hard-to-understand
By combining the best of current research and teaching resources with a
consistent philosophy, Human Anatomy & Physiology is certain to make both teachers and
students more successful in their A&P course.
