    The locations do move around and he does seem open to scheduling new locations. The one my daughter attended was at a Christian camp near Hillsdale in September and families could pay to stay in the camp housing and use the facilities. We drove about 21/2 hours and did bio and chem back to back - but the drive was much less stressful than driving in Chicago traffic. She did it with a friend and we took turns driving. For me, it was worth it not to have to dissect stuff in my kitchen. I did my frog in 7th grade and said never again.

    I agree the samples look awesome. I particularly like the estimated time for the video sections to watch.

    My daughter is taking biology with MPOA. They do some online labs, but you might want to consider these 2 day lab intensives. I don’t know anything about their online classes, but it was nice to have two days of labs where someone else led the dissections.

    These samples do look great. Thank you!
    Is there any sort of a suggested lab component...suggestions as to which ones would be a base to start from? That was my favorite part of Bio and am looking forward to sharing it with my kids too!

    I am going to try to post a sample here. We'll see how that goes. I may have to go to the technology forum and get some help.

    This is great news! When do you think a preview will be available?

    Cathy, I got the email but haven't yet taken time to skim the sections they released. It's going to be a toss up based on how much they can get out before fall. If it's not thorough enough we'll stick with Holt for one more year and wait on Novare's final published version the following year. I wish my rising tenth grader was a rising ninth grader! Haha!

    Did anyone see the samples of Novare's biology textbook? Any thoughts so far?

    For those that are planning Biology next year, what do you think you might do?

    Unfortunately, we don't have any plans at this time for an A/P course.

    Apologies for the delayed response!
