Abstract

This book presents new ideas for why the acceptance and understanding of evolution and related concepts is so difficult for both children and adults. Drawing from diverse fields, the contributors include the foremost researchers and practitioners in the study of children's cognitive development, science education, teaching of evolution, and the design and evaluation of formal and informal instruction of evolution. The book brings together a unique collection of researchers, educators, and practitioners, who met and discussed many of the ideas incorporated in this volume at regional and national meetings funded by the National Science Foundation. The chapters and the overall book integrate cutting edge ideas that emerged from these meetings.
