Students at Hazen Union High School inHardwick are being taught animal anatomy with
state-of-the-art software, thanks to a compas-
sionate science teacher who won a contest spon
-sored by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).To mark "Cut Out Dissection" Month inOctober, TeachKind, PETA's humane-education
arm, sponsored a contest in which teachersaround the country were asked to list the reasons
why their school deserved to win a state-of-the-
art dissection simulation tool called Digital Frog
2.5.Science teacher Teal Church wrote the win-
ning essay, and Hazen Union High School stu
dents started using the interactive computer
software this month.Digital Frog 2.5 allows students to "cut" using
a digital scalpel to explore animal anatomy, and
unlike dead animals who are cut up for dissec-tion, it teaches students about how frogs' living
bodies work as well as about their natural habi
-tats. Church doesn't use animals in her classes
and wanted Digital Frog to provide students witha complete virtual anatomy experience.
"We're delighted to help Ms. Church and
Hazen Union take the lead in teaching biology
with humane, modern methods," says PETASenior Vice President of Laboratory InvestigationsKathy Guillermo.Comparative studies have repeatedly shownthat non-animal teaching methods, such as inter-active computer programs, are more effective atteaching biology than are animal-based methods.These programs also save time and money andincrease student confidence and satisfaction.The National Science Teachers Associationendorses the use of modern non-animal methodsas replacements for animal dissection.
