Insights in Biology
Insights in Biology is a comprehensive first-year high school biology curriculum that emphasizes cellular and molecular biology as well as genetics, ecology and evolution. Insights in Biology represents an innovative approach to teaching and learning introductory biology, incorporating the traditional discipline-specific concepts with an emphasis on presenting concepts in depth and in context. This program not only develops conceptual connections through a storyline that is relevant to students' lives, but also uses inquiry-based activities that focus on process-thinking skills students will use for a lifetime. Supported during its development by the National Science Foundation, one link is to the publisher's website and another is to the Education Development Center site.
