This workshop is an opportunity for teachers to interact with nationally and internationally acclaimed evolutionary biologists involved in cutting-edge research. It incorporates scientific presentations, discussions, and original lesson plans all aimed at helping teachers incorporate evolution into their classrooms. We will review the evidence for evolution and common misconceptions held by students. There is an emphasis on current topics, ongoing research, and real data. Participants will receive a $250 stipend, breakfast and lunch, continuing professional development credits, and a copy of the book 'Why Evolution is True'. Housing is provided for out-of-town participants.
