Hey guys I need your help! In my anatomy class, we are REQUIRED to dissect cats. The lab lasts about 2 weeks too, so I can’t just ditch class! The worst part, my teachers “alternative assignment” is watching it and taking notes. I’m going to try and write up a petition for my class to sign to get a REAL alternative assignment made, but I’m really not that good of a writer, and I don’t know how to convince people who aren’t already opposed to this.
Yeesh! I guess watching and taking notes is better than actually disecting, but still! Have you tryed talking with someone above your teacher, such as a principal or dean? Sometimes, talking to a different person can solve these things. Good Luck!
There are virtual alternatives of dissection online which are cheaper and just as effective as a real dissection without the cruelty. Tell the school it’s better for the school budget and cruelty-free.
