Charles Darwin WebQuest

Charles Darwin Webquest Blogs

(Rewritten from my workbook for the 16th of september meeting)

Today’s meeting included Adam and I meeting at the library to continue work on our webquest. It basically included us discussing roughly the direction we want the webquest to go, what kind of task the students should do, how we are going to incorporate both a history and science component that will meet the syllabus outcomes, the layout, introduction. That sort of thing. Adam is proving to be an amazing webquest designer, he has great ideas about imbedding of photos and movie clips, and if I was a student I would love the look of our webquest! Wix wasn't being cooperative today however and that means Adam is going to have to try and add the extras at home rather than at uni in our meeting times. We discussed having students blog their progress while completing the webquest, this is implementing the use of a web tool into our webquest; it will work similarly like how we are blogging our progress on our webquest. Was a good progessive work session today, hopefully next week we can start drawing together information and plotting it into our webquest layout!

...for religious American audiences
A new British film about Charles Darwin has failed to land a distribution deal in the States because his theories on human evolution are too controversial for religious American audiences, according to the film's producer.
Creation follows the British naturalist's 'struggle between faith and reason' as he wrote his 1859 book, On The Origin Of The Species.
The film, directed by Jon Amielm was chosen to open the Toronto Film Festival and has now been sold to almost every territory in the world

Half of Britons do not believe in evolution

by cheaande

Great Britain is catching up to the U.S. when it comes to the rejection of evolution by natural selection.
'Half of British adults do not believe in evolution, with at least 22% preferring the theories of creationism or intelligent design to explain how the world came about, according to a survey.
The poll found that 25% of Britons believe Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is “definitely true”, with another quarter saying it is “probably true”. Half of the 2,060 people questioned were either strongly opposed to the theory or confused about it.'
