Glencoe Biology helps all students succeed with its organization around major Themes, Big Ideas, and Main Ideas of biology and its strong support for reading comprehension. This program's comprehensive content is made relevant to students through engaging real-world contexts. A wide variety of lab experiences builds strong inquiry skills. The abundance of differentiated instructional strategies helps teachers reach all learners. Reading age for native speakers: High School students
Features: - Draws students into each section with Real-World Reading Links showing applications to their world - Helps students organize key information for study and review with Dinah Zike's FoldablesTM. These unique graphic organizers help students take ownership of their learning. - Helps struggling readers with "Reading Essentials in Biology". This supplement incorporates interactive reading strategies with core content written at a lower level than the textbook. - Builds students' note-taking skills with "Science Notebook". This resource uses the research-based Cornell two-column, note-taking system that has proven to be successful in increasing retention of core content.
