Teaching Biological Evolution in Higher Education: Methodological, Religious, and Nonreligious Issues

by Brian J. Alters
Sudbury, MA: Jones & Bartlett Publishers, 2005. 136 pages.

Reviewing Teaching Biological Evolution in Higher Education for the McGill Journal of Education, NCSE's deputy director Glenn Branch described the book as "a splendid vade mecum," adding, "Alters provides a wealth of valuable suggestions for teaching evolution effectively at the college level, with sensible advice for understanding the misconceptions that students are likely to bring to class. ... Whether creationists are increasingly present or only increasingly visible ... they are definitely on campus, and Teaching Biological Evolution in Higher Education should be on the shelf of any instructor who teaches any aspect of evolution at the college level."
