Constance M. Soja, Deborah Huerta 2001 Journal of Geoscience Education v49 no2 p150-157
This role-playing exercise casts students as scientific specialists, assigned to a group either supporting or opposing the cloning of dinosaurs. Each group researches and presents its argument in class, and other students can ask the specialists questions. The material provided by the professor for research includes information about cloning technology and about dinosaurs.
