Lee Meadows and “Sensitive” Evolution

ILYBYGTH friend Lee Meadows, author of Missing Link: An Inquiry Approach for Teaching All Students about Evolution, has posted a great new short video: “Help!  I’m a biology teacher and I don’t really understand evolution.”

I know some ILYBYGTH readers disagree with Meadows’ approach to teaching evolution.  Some anti-evolutionists feel he goes too far in sugar coating a dangerous doctrine.  As an evolutionist myself, I appreciate his student-centered approach to the subject.  He argues that too many evolution educators–out of ignorance or spite–take a hostile approach to their anti-evolution students.  Meadows argues that they don’t need to.  Not only is it unethical, it is ineffective.

Whether you’re a creationist or evolutionist, it’s worth taking a few minutes to check out his thoughtful video.

  1. Thanks for this. If any of your readers want to discuss my approach, I’m happy to talk with them. I’m always learning, and I appreciate interacting with people, even those who disagree with me.
