    High School Biology is designed to be a two-semester course for first- or second-year high school students. Biology topics include biochemistry, the cell, genetics, natural selection, the history of life, viruses and bacteria, protists, plants, animals, the human body, ecosystems, and environmental topics. High School science courses include strategies for dealing with common misconceptions, based on information gathered from Uncovering Student Ideas in Science by Page Keeley and Joyce Tugel, Project 2061, and the National Science Education Standards. Courses integrate questioning strategies and additional structuring of the learning experience guided by the Model Instruction Program started by David Hestenes and the American Modeling Teachers Association.
