An In-Class Discussion Activity on the Nature of Science and Intelligent Design
Thomas, Brian C.
Physics Teacher, v47 n2 p106-109 Feb 2009
In this paper I describe an in-class discussion activity aimed at helping elementary education majors in a physical science course think about issues surrounding the inclusion of "Intelligent Design" in public school science standards. I discuss the background instruction given, the content of the activity, and some results from its use in class.
