3 | Teaching the Skeleton
Learning the bones and bone markings of the skeleton can be an early, scary experience for A&P students. How can we prepare and support them to learn the skeleton effectively—and learn skills to help them in their continuing studies of human anatomy?
- Bone Names (Kevin’s tip page for A&P students; located in the Lion Den website)
- Short URL (to provide to students) is my-ap.us/bones
- Provides a brief intro to bone naming and how that helps a student learn bones and markings
- Provides 2 videos that walk students through the process of understanding bone names as a method of learning
- Contains highlighted links to helpful lists
- Lists are available as a docx or PDF “handouts” to use for study
- Lists are also available as an interactive table on the web (can be sorted)
- Access to lists requires a free registration in the Lion Den website
