Overview

One of the many advantages to homeschooling is teaching your child what you think is important, not what some bureaucracy thinks is important for testing purposes. As a homeschooler, you can create the kind of course you want based on your child's needs for his or her future.

The challenge for the homeschooler is finding a course outline that provides you with a week-by-week breakdown of relevant topics in biology. Basic Biology: Homeschooling Week By Week does exactly that in a concise, easy-to-read, easy-to-follow format. You no longer have to wonder what to do next, where to look for activities, or how to decide what the goals are. Basic Biology has done all of that for you.

Written by an award-winning high school biology teacher whose family is involved in homeschooling, Basic Biology lays out a 36-week high school biology course in four thematic units. Each unit provides you with a timeline you can follow for included modules. Each modules provides you with an overview, goals, keywords, and an activity.

The strength of Basic Biology is in the flexibility it provides you in spending as much or as little time on each section as you think is appropriate for your child. The activities utilize items you already have in your home, or that can be purchased at the local food store.

For the homeschooler who is looking for an already put-together guide for teaching high school biology, Basic Biology: Homeschooling Week By Week is indispensable.

    Every Homeschooling Family Should Own This Book

    This book has quickly proven to be an indispensable resource in teaching my high school-aged son. Not only does Mr. Turano provide a solid reference for the instruction of scientific facts, he also lays the groundwork for students to begin asking the most important question in any area of study--"why?"

    In one simple, lucid paragraph, he removes the shroud of nerd-mystique surrounding the study of science (and of biology in particular), rendering it instantly and elegantly relevant to our everyday lives.

    The experiments are simple and inexpensive, the style is friendly and accessible, and at this price it's simply a steal. Anyone who cares about their child's education can't afford to be without it.
