Evolution and Inquiry Based Learninig
Mon Nov 27, 2017 7:01 PM
A few weeks ago, I taught a 10 day unit plan for my practicum class in a 10th grade biology class. I taught evolution and it went decently well but most of my lesson plans revolved around a more traditional approach: do a mini lecture then do a dry lab then a worksheet. I know there is nothing inherently wrong with this but I just felt it to be a bit boring. Next semester I will be student teaching and I will have another opportunity to teach the information but I want to include more inquiry into the lessons. So my question is, what are some resources that I can use to get more inquiry based learning into my classroom? I feel it is quite difficult to teach inquiry based learning for something like evolution. Any pointer would be helpful. Thank you so much!

I found an article within the Learning Center that discusses an online resource for teaching evolution. See if this can be of help:
Let me know what you think! Also, does anyone else have specific lessons that could help?
