HS Foundational Biology
This class is first and foremost an approachable and readable explanation of the basics of biology. Using analogies, anecdotes, and simple, personable language, students learn the bottom-line themes and key details of biology. The Riot and the Dance is not a pile of disconnected facts: it is an integrated foundation for understanding biological life, and it will stir up curiosity about all life from fungus firearms to familiar vertebrates—that, along with a greater desire to praise the Creator of it all.
This will include labs.
