Teaching evolution in a Christian school
My research question started with, "How does a college-preparatory education teach evolution, in the context of a complete commitment to the historic Christian faith?" The answer was with great science, great faith, and great teaching. This was developed into my focus statement: "How effective will a scientifically rigorous, religiously sensitive, inquiry-based evolution unit be in a Christian school?" The success of the unit will be measured in terms of student understandings of evolution and student acceptance of scientific understandings.
