Biology Success: Teaching Diverse Learners
The Biology Success! manual asserts that students with learning differences can succeed in high school and college introductory biology courses when the curriculum has been designed to respond to their learning needs. To support this goal, a manual was producted for the National Science Foundation under Grant No. HRD - 0004264. After the Biology Success! manual went out of print, the text was converted to a series of PDFs that are available at no cost to download.
Please email LCIRT to request access to the PDF version of the manual.
