Teaching evolution

Much has been published about teaching evolution. A recent review of the literature finds 316 papers that have been published about teaching evolution at the undergraduate level, and 92 published papers about teaching evolution in high school. Research on teaching evolution typically focuses on

  1. Learning goals for students
  2. Student thinking about evolutionary concepts and topics
  3. Assessments, often in the form of concept inventories
  4. Instructional strategies

A small but growing literature focuses specifically on teaching evolutionary applications to human health and disease.
