The Search for a Better Theory on Natural Selection
Students will examine Darwin’s theory of natural selection, the book Survival of the Sickest by Dr. Sharon Moalem and Jonathan Price, and the blog entry "Surviving the Black Death." Upon reading these materials, students will analyze Darwin’s in light of the evidence presented in the other two resources. Students will then develop a theory of natural selection that adequate explains some of the inconsistencies in Darwin’s theory using the evidence presented by Dr. Moalem and Katy Meyers.
