AP Environmental Science (see award below),
Environmental Science and
Advanced Environmental Science by Carol Matthews, wins TEXTY Award from the Text and Academic Authors Assn.
Marine Biology is written by the same teacher-author as AP Environmental Science, Environmental Science, Freshwater and Aquatic Science. The Judge's comment regarding the AP Environmental Science was: "Excellent work and certainly relevant! The student manual gives students the opportunity to see concepts in practice. This is probably the best material that I have seen on environmental science."
