This book is meant for introductory biology students at Shaw High School in East Cleveland, Ohio. I have made it publicly available so that activities, passages, questions and articles can be freely taken and used by any and all educators who find them useful. It is designed to help students with only a very basic understanding of science reach 10th grade academic content standards using accessible vocabulary, hands-on activities and graphical organizers (among other things). This is a work in progress in every sense. I do not presume any copyright at all, and I attempt to give credit to named sources. Please leave comments, suggestions or contributions where desired or send me an e-mail at duttonatshaw@yahoo.com.

The units and chapters of study are as follows:
