Evolution Challenges: Integrating Research and Practice in Teaching and Learning about Evolution

edited by Karl S. Rosengren, Sarah K. Brem, E. Margaret Evans, and Gale M. Sinatra

New York: Oxford University Press, 2012. 504 pages.

Reviewer Tania Lombrozo describes Evolution Challenges as “a broad-ranging volume that straddles basic research on evolutionary understanding and educational practice. As a result, it’s likely to have something new for both teachers and researchers, and may be of interest to general readers hoping to learn more about the psychological underpinnings of people’s understanding (or misunderstanding) and acceptance (or rejection) of evolution. The chapters are well written and fairly accessible, but this ... is not a light read for the uninitiated.”
