>The Understanding Evolution web site -- written for teachers but

>shopping" for evolution education. The web site is rich in content, with
>sections on the nature of science, evolution itself, the different lines
>of evidence supporting evidence, evolution's relevance to everyday life,
>widespread misconceptions about evolution, and the history of evolutionary
>thought. There is also an extensive section especially for teachers,
>giving advice on teaching evolution, ideas for lesson plans, ways to avoid
>confusing students, and answering common student questions.
>The Understanding Evolution web site is a collaborative project of the
>National Center for Science Education and the University of California
>Museum of Paleontology. It was funded by a grant to UCMP from the
>National Science Foundation and the Howard Hughes Foundation. NCSE's
>Eugenie C. Scott, Alan Gishlick, and Eric Meikle assisted in its
>production. Be sure to check it out!
