I am a pre-service teacher in my junior year of college, and I used this E-book to help me create a lesson plan all about ecosystems and how they support organisms. This E-book was very informative about a variety of topics that are interwoven together. For example, I read the E-book with a specific topic in mind (ecosystems), and by the time I was finished I wanted to tie together more concepts, such as populations, because the book showed me how well these topics were related. The E-book was engaging as well, making it a fun read because it has color pictures and images that you can click on and interact with. I felt that I digested the information in this E-book well because it incorporated spots to "check you thinking," as well as review questions to help you gauge how well you understood the material. The end of the E-book also talks about the key ideas included in the text and what the learner should be able to do to provide evidence of their understanding. I really liked the "Evidence for Understanding" portion of this book because I could translate these into questions and activities I could do with my students in the classroom to make sure they understand the material that I taught them from this E-book. The final assessment that you can take after you read through the E-book is a great comprehension check for yourself, and you also could utilize some of those questions on a test for your students after you taught the material to them! I recommend this E-book because it gives you a healthy background knowledge about populations, ecosystems, biomes, and so on. I love that it is on the NSTA website because I trust the information I am reading, so I know I will be able to teach my students information they can count on being true and relevant. Definitely read this E-book if you are looking to gain more knowledge about interdependence and if you want to really process the information you are reading through interactive features
