Biology Textbook

I have found that my students have a wide range of reading abilities but are all still able to understand introductory Biology. Since our textbook appeals to readers closer to the high school level, I wanted to make available a collection of readings that appeals to learners who may struggle with our textbook but can be successful in Biology and on the Ohio State Tests.
I have also included a link to an audio version of the readings for students who prefer to hear the text in order to increase comprehension: Audio Version

John currently teaches computer science at MC2STEM High School, having recently joined the team after five years as a science and computer science teacher at Campus International High School, and a decade at Shaw High School. Prior to teaching, John spent 10 years in the computer and software industry. He believes that computer science education is critical to help all learners develop analytical and marketable skills for college, career, and beyond. In 2022, John was elected president of CSTA Ohio, which serves to develop a supportive knowledge-sharing network of computer science teachers statewide. John is a member of the Moreland Neighborhood Network, and co-produces the Witness to History program, recording life stories of longtime Moreland residents. John is a year-round bicycle commuter, and has brought that experience into his classroom with a bike-building engineering project for his students.
