Better Biology Teaching by Emphasizing Evolution and the Nature of Science
Martin K. Nickels, Craig E. Nelson, Jean Beard 1996 The American Biology Teacher v58 no6 p332-336
This article deals with how to teach evolution effectively, not only in the face of creationism, but also given the weak pedagogy traditionally used in basic biology classes. The authors advise stressing the nature of science, using evolution as an organizing principle for biological topics, focusing on human evolution, and promoting critical thinking in biology classes. There are many specific recommendations within each section and an interesting dicsussion of the limits of science.
