A 5E Nature of Science Introduction: Preparing Students to Learn about Evolution
Bilica, Kimberly
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v49 n1 p23-28 2012
Teachers often struggle with controversy when teaching biological evolution in American schools. Research indicates that curriculum with a nature of science (NOS) focus quells controversy (McComas 2004; Scharmann 2005; Staver 2003). This article presents a 5E NOS series that is a first step in a NOS curriculum that situates student understanding of evolution and controversy. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
