Who Uses BASI


Biology: As Scientific Inquiry has energized my classroom.  Students are challenged to think clearly, work together, problem solve, and apply the scientific method in labs and classroom activities.”

Tim Krell, Biology teacher, Riverside School District, Carnation, Washington

“I have been completely and thoroughly impressed with Biology: As Scientific Inquiry and owe the successes this year, in great measure, to Mr. Thompson’s curriculum.”

Dan Shannon, biology teacher, Moeler High School, Cincinnati, OH

“I think the tactics and ideas in Biology: As Scientific Inquiry are terrific!  This is what all science teaching/learning should be: grade one through grad school."

Dr. Gordon Murphy, Professor, Department of Biology, University of Oregon, Eugene
