About Alison

Check out Alison's Blog.

"I've set up this blog in response to comments from secondary school biology teachers, especially those preparing students for Scholarship Biology examinations. I hope to use it as a way of encouraging critical thinking, looking at scientific papers that are relevant to the Level 3 curriculum and to Scholarship, and fielding questions that you may come up with."
