Teaching Evolution: Mississippi and Alabama's Report Cards

Evolutionary theory is foundational to multiple disciplines but remains culturally controversial. It is an umbrella under which all other disciplines and explanations for life can be nested, yet many educators avoid teaching it because of potential for community backlash. In this talk, Dr. Chris Lynn of the University of Alabama will explore how Mississippi and Alabama fare in state assessment of student understanding of evolution.

Open House 

The Center for Faculty Development along with the Speaking and Writing Centers will host an informal lunch for junior faculty on November 8th at noon in the Speaking Center workshop room, #114 in Cook Library. 

We will discuss how the centers can support speaking and writing throughout students’ degree progression, beginning with general education coursework and into upper division discipline-specific courses. We look forward to an informal question and answer session about integrating speaking and writing into course planning, classroom activities, and subject-matter understanding.
