Learning Evolution through Human Examples

The Teachers Advisory Committee (TAC) will collaborate with scientists and education staff at the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of Natural History's Human Origins exhibit to provide advice on a project that will examine whether high school biology teachers, and ultimately their students, will more effectively learn and understand general concepts and principles of evolution by employing examples from the science of human evolution.
