Evolution and the Nature of Science Institutes

Jean Beard, Craig Nelson, Martin Nickles, Department of Biological Sciences, Department of Biology, Anthropology Program

This is a collection of classroom lessons to help high school biology teachers more effectively teach basic concepts in the areas of evolution and the nature of science. They were developed and tested during nine years of summer institutes by biology teachers from across the nation. This highly lab-oriented module is a very useful evolution and deep-time teaching site.
