Today the ALC Health Science students prepared for their exam with a hands-on dissection of cow eyes.  Students were asked to identify all structures of the eye. This challenging university anatomy/physiology course is delivered by Weber State University.

Film Students go to Sundance

Mr. Arnold’s Film Production classes took a field trip to the Sundance Film Festival last week. They watched films from Israel/Palestine, China, Japan, and Minnesota. They also ate food from Mexico, Belgium, and Germany. In doing so, students gained insights into other ways of life around the world, like a Palestinian double agent working for the Israeli spy agency. Or like boys in China who have been sent to rehabilitation centers for kids with internet addictions. Despite all of the cultural differences and standards of living, we learn that we all have emotions, needs and many other things in common.

Sean Curtis was born and raised in Springville and his family has farmed here since it was settled in the 1800s.  In fact, the original settler Enos Curtis is buried in the cemetery just a few blocks from the ALC.

Mr. Curtis now lives in Spanish Fork with his wife Andrea, two sons, Haden and Robby, and baby daughter, Emery.  He and his wife have been married for 9 years. When not at the ALC, you will find Mr. Curtis playing with his kids.  He says, “I like to get them out to fish, camp, play in the snow, and just get away from the pressures for some fun.”

Little Brains

Submitted by anna.palmer on Tue, 01/28/2014 - 09:02

The ALC students taking anatomy and physiology through Weber State University put their brains to work this week.  They were tasked to flag all of the anatomy and physiology learned over the past couple of weeks, in preparation for their exam.  The sheep's brain dissection was a great way for students to get away from a traditional lecture and get some hands on engaged learning.
