Monkey time

Science teacher Anthony Cody, whose blog  Living in Dialogue appears at the Teacher Magazine website, has an interesting “teacher lens” view of the seemingly endless debate over, as he puts it, “the central organizing principle that guides our understanding of living things on Earth.”

In “Teaching Evolution in Oakland,” Cody describes his own technique for anticipating and transmuting questions from students like “are you saying we came from monkeys?”

Don’t miss the “living dialogue” going on between Anthony and “Steve” in the Comments!
