다윈 200 주년 행사

Darwin Turns 200

February 12, 2009, marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth. Born on the same day as Abraham Lincoln, Darwin's insights have structured two centuries of modern biology in much the same way that Lincoln's have influenced American government.

In honor of Darwin's birthday, NSTA Reports has produced an article called “Celebrate the Origin of Darwin.” In addition, our editors have compiled an outstanding selection of resources. Appropriate for both teachers and students, the article and the collection highlight Darwin's ideas and celebrate his accomplishments.


Evolution Research Package from the Pew Research Center

Almost 200 years after Charles Darwin was born and nearly 150 years after Darwin published his groundbreaking work On the Origin of Species, Americans are still fighting over evolution.

If anything, the controversy has recently grown in both size and intensity. In the last five years alone, debates over the extent to which evolution is taught in public schools have been heard in school boards, town councils and legislatures in more than half of the United States.

A new research package by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life marks the anniversary of both the birth of Darwin and the publication of On the Origin of Species. The package features a collection of research reports and other resources, including:

Overview:
Fighting Over Evolution
Darwin and His Theory of Evolution
The Social and Legal Dimensions of the Evolution Debate in the U.S.
Religious Groups’ Views on Evolution
Fighting Over Darwin, State by State
Evolution: A Timeline
Graphic: Religious Differences on the Question of Evolution
