Summary:
This curriculum kit, specifically for educators, includes the 7-part Evolution series on 4 DVDs; a supplemental educator's film featuring 7 short classroom segments that explore the fundamental concepts of biological evolution and 4 teacher methodology segments that highlight the teaching of evolution in real classrooms around the country, plus a 40-page downloadable teacher's guide; and the NOVA film Judgment Day - Intelligent Design on Trial. Evolution, a seven-part, eight-hour series, offers a groundbreaking and definitive view of the extraordinary impact the evolutionary process has had on our understanding of the world around us. Beginning with Darwin's revolutionary theory, this series explores all facets of evolution–the changes that spawned the tree of life, the power of sex, how evolution continues to affect us every day, and the perceived conflict between science and religion. Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial captures the turmoil that tore apart the community of Dover, Pennsylvania in a landmark battle over the teaching of evolution in public schools. In 2004, the Dover school board ordered science teachers to read a statement to high school biology students about an alternative to Darwin's theory of evolution called intelligent design—the idea that life is too complex to have evolved naturally and so must have been designed by an intelligent agent. The teachers refused to comply, and both parents and teachers filed a lawsuit in federal court accusing the school board of violating the constitutional separation of church and state. Now, NOVA explores the arguments by lawyers and expert witnesses in riveting detail and provides an eye-opening crash course on questions such as "What is evolution?" and "Is intelligent design a scientifically valid alternative?" Featuring trial reenactments based on court transcripts and interviews with key participants and expert scientists, this gripping program presents the celebrated case of Kitzmiller v. Dover School District. Special DVD features include: materials and activities for educators; a link to the NOVA and Evolution Web sites; scene selections; and closed captions. On 6 DVD5 discs. Region coding: Region 1. Audio: Dolby stereo. Screen format: Letterboxed or 16:9 Anamorphic.
