|(4 cr.) This course examines the mechanisms of
evolutionary change and surveys the evolutionary
and phylogenetic history of life on earth.
Because evolution is often a focus of social
debate about ways of knowing and about the nature
of humanity, students also explore the history of
this debate and its influence on society. Lastly,
because this course is intended to provide
training for teachers, students review new
insights about How People Know and how to teach
science so that students learn with understanding.
