High School Biology Course with Lab work -

The guide went out as a beta test version a couple of years ago. Lots of folks all over the country have tried it out and sent feedback. The hyperlinks have all been updated and the format has been simplified to make it more user friendly. If you use it and would like to make suggestions, let me know! There are a ton of books and resources scheduled in, but you know how best to apply it to your students! Tweak, adapt, and follow the CM methodology! If you would like to know more and see other CM stuff, visit my blog where I blog on thoughts toward the beauty of days and times of wonder... www.gracefulthought.blogspot.com
