Overview

Saturday, May 9, 2009

This workshop has been developed to provide teachers better tools, information and resources to more effectively teach about evolution and natural selection in the schoolroom. This one-day workshop takes you from concepts to practice, with materials and tools built specifically with teacher’s expertise for teachers. This course offers access to experts in evolution, law, education, and creative technology, in partnership with multiple colleges at ASU, Arizona Foundation for Resource Education (AFRE), and the community educational outreach children’s Web site, Ask a Biologist. Workshop also includes an (optional) tour of the Institute for Human Origins at ASU.

Stipends available to accepted applicants. Applications must be received by May 1, 2009.
