Students are motivated to learn in the context of highly engaging and authentic “real-world” projects that guide instruction, serve to organize meaningful learning, and promote the excitement and joy of learning.
Students actively engage in science and engineering practices and mathematical reasoning to deepen their understanding of core ideas. Students work together to define problems, conduct investigations, make models, use computational thinking, write explanations, and discuss and present findings.
Our 21st century technology is designed to support a seamless implementation of our curricula. It includes all hands-on equipment needed for the classroom and top-of-the-line electronic books, probes, and mobile devices.
We are committed to providing comprehensive support services for districts implementing our programs. From face-to-face workshops to our ever-expanding Cyber professional-development resources, we can tailor-fit a complete solution to your needs.
Active Biology is a two-chapter module that can be used as a drop-in unit or as part of an integrated science course with chapters from Active Physics, Active Chemistry, and EarthComm.
Active Biology is reasearch based.
Active Biology’s chapters follow the same proven learning approach to science as Active Physics, Active Chemistry, and EarthComm. They are all designed and built on the research- based 7E Instructional Approach that weaves together science content with a pedagogical strategy that ensures increased student motivation, understanding, and performance.
Active Biology students develop communication and collaboration skills.
In Active Biology, students develop a community of practice and a culture of collaboration and communication. The presentations of the Chapter Challenges provide students with opportunities to engage in scientific arguments using evidence and science knowledge, and promote a deeper understanding through public practice.
