Concept Cartoons These concept cartoons were developed by Dianne Anderson and Kathleen Fisher (2002) as prompts for eliciting discussion about ideas in evolution. They can also be used as assessment tools. The cartoons are best suited for college non-majors and pre-college classes. The incorrect statements in the cartoons are derived from common naive conceptions. These cartoons represent a sampling of those we have created. More concept cartoons can be seen at the following site: Cartoons can be downloaded in PDF format and can be transferred to transparencies or paper copies so long as the copyright notation to Anderson and Fisher is retained.

Selecting a manageable voting roster from among the more than 1,200 nominations that came in from readers wasn't easy, and we were happy to be able to rely on such an experienced panel of judges. Summer, like youth, is fleeting.

In this post, I share ideas on certain types of videos that I’ve gathered and how educators might use related methods or styles to engage students in constructing and deconstructing media while becoming critical consumers and producers of digital media. 1) Conversation with Future Me/You: “A Conversation with My 12 Year Old Self: 20th Anniversary Edition” is a recently popular video by Jeremiah McDonald.
