SESSION 8: How Can You Deal with Controversy?

Engage Part A: The Evolution Controversy

Although educators, curriculum and standards committees, school boards, and the courts have all supported the teaching of evolution, conflict keeps reemerging. Watch the Evolution Case Study video segment "Controversial News Reports," which documents the ongoing controversy from the 1920s to today, and an Evolution Library video segment about the Scopes Trial.
