Im glad someobody reprised this thread, I was thinking about it a bit this summer. II guess you should be prepping for another semester SOOOO.There are a number of good resources that I could suggest. HOWEVER, as a possible way to teach good science and still not avoid the issue, why not take more time in genetics and look at the similar genomes of , say mice and people, chimps and people, or hyraces and elephants, or even horses and whales.
The genomes of these need to be discussed in a light of "SImilarites of genotype and derivation of phenotype"
Ive often thought about this very thing and Id be happy to dig deeper into some resources that you could use.
I WOULD STAY AWAY FROM THE INTERNET. WHY? because most internet sites of science (like some very great sites on evolution) have been studied over and attempts at refuting theor facts have been made over and over. Without going through a detailed analyses of these sites, you culd easily get blind sided by some pre-prepared bullshit that has a sound of truth but takes a deeper understandong to fond out where the errors lie. ID prepare my own from rw reources . That way many f these Creat"Quote miners" can be exposed to new analyses.
Good times youll have (or else youll go nutz-I teach too so I try to redo my syllibii each new term so that I stay ahead of the quote miners.
ALSO, my area has evolution evidence via the fossil record as my main topic, I use genetics often as a "Door slammer"
