Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

The short story "The Cask of Amontillado," by Edgar Allan Poe is an effective venue for teaching English I literary terms. The following lesson plan is designed to engage the reader in a deeper than superficial reading of the text. It is also designed to elicit discussion and written critical-thinking responses.

As educators in higher education, we face many challenges, but probably none like that of teaching online. While institutions of higher education have enjoyed a long history of traditional teaching and learning, the realities of providing an environment tailored to the needs and interests of today's adult learners is a very real and timely issue. Many institutions have pursued online instruction as a means of competing in today's marketplace, while addressing the unique needs of the current generation of degree-seeking adults who have family, community, and work commitments -- in other words, whose time is highly structured and virtually controlled by a wide variety of factors. Thus, Web-supported instruction is becoming much more commonplace in colleges and universities (Lindner, Dooley & Murphy, 2001). Web-based courses are being used increasingly by instructors to optimize the delivery of instruction and instructional materials. These include: Web pages, chat rooms, discussion groups, e-mail, animation, streaming video, etc.
