Lenore Kenny , Students as intellectuals
May 07

Lenore Kenny says that science education is a force for social justice because being able to think like a scientist “gives you a lot of power to be used along the path of social change.” In this lesson on evolution, she trains her students in the scientific thinking process by asking them to examine evidence and analyze it by looking for patterns. She reminds students to “get in the mindset of thinking like evolutionary scientists” and asks them to “engage your mind like a scientist.”
