Site on teaching evolution
Carl Zimmer over at The Loom has announced the opening of a new evolution website for teachers. The site contains heaps of information, everything from the basics of evolutionary theory, information on the nature of science, links to lesson ideas/plans for grades K-12 (searchable by grade level and topic), and probably the best piece on the history of evolutionary thought I've ever seen. Zimmer contributed to the history section, and a bunch of other folks helped with the site, which is partially funded by both the NSF and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. It's an incredible resource!
