Coming in March . . .

Tracking the Course of Evolution

Join UCMP for this dynamic short course, co-sponsored by Orville J. and Ellina Marx Golub and the California Science Teachers Association (CSTA), and take a comprehensive look at the evolution of life on Earth, March 11-12.
Ideas on the origins of life, the first animals, extinction, and evolution will be discussed by several prominent scientists. Special presentations will also focus on the teaching of evolution in the classroom: an effective curriculum model and teaching conceptions, not misconceptions.
In addition to the lectures, there will be handouts, information on WWW projects, and opportunities for questions and conversations
  with the speakers. And “back by popular demand” we are offering a workshop for teachers on Sunday. This workshop will include conversations with scientists as well as hands-on activities for teaching evolution in the classroom (grades 5-12).
Speakers include Nan Crystal Arens, UCMP; Sandra Carlson, UC Davis; Richard Cowan, UC Davis; Scott Dawson, UC Berkeley; David W. Deamer, UC Santa Cruz; David R. Lindberg, Jere H. Lipps and Kevin Padian, UCMP; Eugenie C. Scott, National Center for Science Education; and Bruce H. Tiffney, UC Santa Barbara.
