The fourth edition of BSCS Biology: A Human Approach helps students understand biology concepts through inquiry-based activities and constructivist learning strategies that relate key biology themes to students' lives. BSCS Biology: A Human Approach also strongly emphasizes the development of students' problem-solving, critical-thinking, and inquiry skills. The curriculum allows learners to conduct investigations that are meaningful to them and that highlight experimental design, analysis of data, the formulation of explanations, and the application of concepts, rather than the verification of processes about which students already have learned. And to accommodate the demand that students be able to apply their understanding of biology to the personal, social, and ethical demands of scientific literacy, the program uses real-world connections and thematic approaches that bridge the gap between familiar student experiences and more abstract biology theories. BSCS Biology: A Human Approach is a curriculum that meets the needs of a changing discipline and a changing education environment. The rapid increase in the knowledge base of biology demands that students develop lifelong-learning skills that encourage continued science literacy. This course provides the tools to meet this need by presenting biology in a way that unifies life and establishes a relevance to students' lives. In addition, its careful treatment of the nature and methods of science helps to develop students' own scientific habits of mind. The Teacher Edition has been developed in a wrap-around format that includes reduced student pages, features more in-depth lesson planning support, and offers a wealth of options for differentiated instruction. Concept maps are included for each chapter, and updated, easy-to-use assessment tools help measure student understanding and progress.
