The Arc of History Bends Toward Teaching Evolution

by: Joseph W. Shane, Lee Meadows, Ronald S. Hermann, and Ian C. Binns

This chapter emphasizes the historical roots and persistence of opposition to evolution given that it is the most prevalent science-religion theme. Teaching evolution has presented a challenge to teachers since the 1920s. Even those who teach it enthusiastically usually expect resistance, but proper science education requires instruction in evolutionary theory. Teacher background information, references, and resources are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, About the Authors and Contributors, and Index.
