Who’s Afraid of High School Biology?

Popular Study Guides, Revised and Updated, Now Available in eBook Form

Many high school students, not to mention the adults who have gone before them, find the thought of high school biology daunting.

To make the learning experience easier and more enjoyable, longtime biology teacher Roger Prior has just released in eBook form the latest updated versions of his acclaimed Biology Study Guides. These easy-to-use resources are available in two volumes or as separate units.

Each title in the Biology Study Guides series is carefully designed to focus on essential content, increase student comprehension, extend thinking about the topic being presented, and to greatly enhance students’ chances of successfully completing their high school biology class.

Featured in every study guide are full interactive glossaries for technical terms, interactive questions linked to their answers, labeled diagrams, some interactive with quiz-view formats, and various check-up and discussion questions.

The twenty units are clustered into the following four theme areas:

DIVERSITY OF LIFE
TAXONOMY • MICROBIOLOGY.• SEEDLESS PLANTS •  PLANTS WITH SEEDS   •  LOWER INVERTEBRATES •  HIGHER INVERTEBRATES •  CHORDATES

DYNAMICS OF ORGANISMS
ECOLOGY • EVOLUTION

CYTOLOGY
CHEMISTRY OF LIFE • CELL STRUCTURES •  MEMBRANE FUNCTION •  DNA  •  ENZYMES

HUMAN BIOLOGY
DIGESTIVE SYSTEM • CIRCULATORY SYSTEM • RESPIRATORY SYSTEM • NERVOUS SYSTEM • URINARY SYSTEM • REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM

Prior first began compiling his teaching notes and lesson plans into study guides for high school students in the late 1990s; his first paperback version was released in 1999. Fourteen years and numerous editions later, he is pleased to be offering these updated electronic versions.

Prior comments, "I wrote these study guides based on my ongoing desire to develop useful learning resources for students." He adds, "A lot of students struggle, and I wanted to make biology easier for them."

AUTHOR:Roger Prior began teaching senior biology in British Columbia, Canada, in 1976. He retired from teaching in 2012, and with the encouragement and support of his family and others, successfully converted his popular study guides into interactive eBooks available as individual units or in two volumes.
