Introducing Students to Darwin via the Voyage of HMS "Beagle"
Swab, Janice C.
American Biology Teacher, v72 n5 p281-286 May 2010
I use the diary that Darwin wrote during the voyage of HMS Beagle and recent images of a few of the places he visited to illustrate some comparisons between Darwin's world and ours. For today's students, increasingly committed to environmental issues, this may be an especially promising way to introduce Darwin.
