Belk, Colleen, Borden, Virginia


For one-semester courses in Introductory Biology, for non-major biology students. Biology: Science for Life strives to achieve scientific literacy by placing biology in context of students' daily lives. Each chapter is structured around interesting stories, which then drive the discussion of the science. In telling a story, one that draws upon students' life experiences, it motivates students to become active participants in the learning process. Students are inspired to learn the science as a way of understanding the complete story. Because science, told as a story, can intrigue and inform the non-scientific minds among us, it has the potential to bridge the two cultures into which civilization is split the sciences and the humanities. For educators, stories are an exciting way to draw young minds into the scientific culture. E.O. WilsonBelk, Colleen is the author of 'Biology Science For Life, Media Update', published 2005 under ISBN 9780132367356 and ISBN 0132367351.
