Topics include: natural selection, artificial selection, population genetics, human adaptations and evolution, and phylogenetics.
At times, teachers can become overwhelmed with the amount of resources accessible to them from various organizations and the internet. It becomes difficult to find the time to process through all the information and develop solid classroom-ready activities and lessons from the vast materials available. This guide will provide teacher-ready curriculum ideas utilizing Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) resources, including the BioInteractive website features and the Holiday Lectures on Science DVD’s, to enhance classroom instruction of evolutionary biology.
Each part of this curriculum guide organizes HHMI resources that pertain to Evolution specifically related to natural selection, artificial selection, population genetics, human adaptations and evolution, and phylogenetics. The resources contain animations, video clips, interactive “click and learn” activities, and lecture chapters specific to evolution. The resources are logically organized in each table with the resources grouped together by their topic.
