The LA Times recently reported (Testing Darwin’s Teachers) on how students are taking it upon themselves to wedge creationism into the classroom, sometimes with snide comments and sometimes with questions. Oooh, those subversive students.
The Evolutionary cavalry (AAAS) is rushing in to rescue teachers from these subversive students with a 28-page guide (Evolution on the Front Lines, PDF) to teaching the scientific principles behind evolution.
It has also issued talking points to present ‘both sides.’
The annual science teachers` convention — scheduled to be held in Anaheim, Calif., next week — will cover similar ground, with workshops on ‘Teaching Evolution in a Climate of Controversy.’ (Monsters and Critics)
