I'm trying to stay as calm as possible and focus one day at a time, but when reality sets in, I feel everything: anxiety, excitement, nerves, pressure and joy. (Shawn Johnson)

This is a BONUS episode—which means it's a long one!

 

1 |Mitochondrial inheritance 3 minutes

New research shows that in some cases, paternal mtDNA may be passed along to offspring in a pattern that resembles autosomal dominant inheritance.

6 | Helping students with text anxiety 45 minutes

Kevin's Theory of Test Anxiety states that we are ALL subject to test anxiety. Perhaps occasionally. Perhaps often. In any case, it can affect our ability to retrieve and apply the information we've practiced and thereby affect our performance—and score—on a test or exam. Sometimes significantly. What, if anything, can be done to avoid text anxiety or manage it once it strikes? What can teachers do? What can students do? Well, here's a place to start!

Here are some links you can share with your students:

4 | Elephants and skin 16.5 minutes

Kevin's experience in zoos, circuses, and on safari in Africa form the basis of some elephant stories he tells in his A&P courses to emphasize some concepts of the integumentary system. In this episode, he shares some elephant research updates, then goes into how elephant skin can help us better understand the thermoregulatory function of human skin. The images show Kevin (on ground in dark suit) and his elephant friend Flora, the retired namesake of Circus Flora. The anterior and posterior sides of Flora's ears pictured are referred to in Kevin' stories (you may use these images in your teaching with attribution).

I never teach the same course twice. (Elie Wiesel)

1 | Listen up!
4.5 minutes
Feedback from listener Ron Parente leads to a discussion of how accommodating for hearing impairments and other challenges actually help all learners—not just those needing accommodation. Have questions, comments, stories, or ideas related to accommodating student needs? Pass them along for a future episode focused on this topic.

3 | Update in epigenetics
3.5 minutes
Epigenetic inheritance is known to involve various factors impacting DNA, such as methylation. We are now seeing roles for RNAs, including the long RNAs from sperm than enable epigenetic inheritance via the male parent.

 

4 | Handedness in cells
3 minutes
Chirality is "handedness" or the characteristics of having mirror-image versions. You may be familiar with this phenomenon in cells, but did you know it also occurs in cells? New research suggests that a change in handedness in diabetes mellitus may explain how blood vessels get leaky.

5 | The Nazi Anatomists—A Conversation with Aaron Fried
21 minutes
Aaron Fried, A&P faculty at Mohawk Valley Community College and national speaker on human body donation and anatomists in Nazi Germany, joins Kevin for a lively discussion of the value of "the silent teacher"—the human body donor—in teaching human structure. In this second of two chats, Aaron discusses illustrations produced using executed prisoners in Nazi Germany and what this means for today's A&P teacher.
