BSCS Biology: A Human Approach
BSCS Biology: A Human Approach is an introductory high school biology curriculum that helps students look at and understand biology in a brand new way. This program is based on key ideas in biology today, organized around six unifying themes, and presented in a human context. The BSCS Biology: A Human Approach curriculum aggressively incorporates an inquiry-based approach to learning biology. Hands-on activities clearly illustrate the connections between biology, daily life, and the human body--something teenagers relate to and understand. Most importantly, this program centers around students learning science by doing science. Supported during its development by the National Science Foundation, one link is to the publisher's website and another is to relevant research and evaluation.
