New Textbook Seeks to Improve Teaching of Evolution as reported by Rob Crowther.
“Explore Evolution brings to the classroom data and debates that already are raised regularly by scientists in their science journals,Ã¢â‚¬Â emphasized science education policy analyst Casey Luskin, M.S., J.D. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Exposure to these real-world scientific debates will make the study of evolution more interesting to students, and it will train them to be better scientists by encouraging them to actually practice the kind of critical thinking and analysis that forms the heart of science.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Co-authored by two state university biology professors, two philosophers of science, and a science curriculum writer, Explore Evolution was peer-reviewed by biology faculty at both state and private universities, teachers with experience in both AP and pre-AP life science courses, and doctoral scientists working for industry and government. The textbook has been pilot-tested in classes at both the secondary school and college levels.
