Evolution for Teaching

This website has been developed to provide a web based resource for use by New Zealand secondary teachers, especially in the science fields of evolution and geological time. Discussions with teachers and gaps in the information and structure of existing sites showed a need for a website that provides knowledge content to answer questions on evolution with accurate, clear and relevant scientific information. Recognising that teachers are very busy and consistently adapt material for use with their classes this site provides 'bite sized' information with images for use in response to student queries or for integration into a planned unit. A key feature of this site is its 'search' function. There is a Frequently Asked Questions area that will build up over time with teachers using the email form provided to send in their questions. Thus the site will have a degree of interactivity.
