Creationism's Trojan horse : the wedge of intelligent design by Barbara Forrest( Book )

32 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Creationism's Trojan Horse, Forrest and Gross document the agenda and advances of "Intelligent Design," the most recent manifestation of American science education's perennial affliction: creationism. Explaining and analyzing what "design theorists" call their "Wedge Strategy"--An attempt to substitute "theistic science" for natural science in the public mind - this book documents the Wedge's aggressive, decade-long public relations campaign to implement the strategy. The most notable feature of its purportedly new scientific paradigm is the failure of its creators to produce either a scientific research program or any original scientific data to support their claims. Instead, the design movement maintains a crowded schedule of popular publications for its mostly conservative Christian constituency, lectures, and media appearances - sustained by lucrative funding from religious benefactors. The Wedge has intruded itself successfully into educational politics at the local, state, and now national levels."--Jacket

Back to Basics: The Use of Newspapers and Other Print Media to Teach Analytic Reading, Writing, and Reasoning by Barbara Forrest( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Students must be informed about what is going on in the United States and the world. They must be able to understand, analyze, and evaluate what they hear and read. Newspaper and magazine editorials are excellent sources of argument and information for class study. Genuine understanding of written material requires thinking during reading. Generally, American students have little understanding of what they read and lack basic information or cultural literacy. Using newspaper editorials, students learn to identify and reconstruct an argument, and to evaluate it. Some techniques of argument analysis must occur at the didactic stage, through lecture. During the tactical stage, students engage actively in group readings and editorial analyses. In the analytic stage, students begin to apply the intellectual skills and abilities which they eventually will be required to use on their own. In the holistic stage, students have the opportunity to exercise and sharpen their new analytic skills in a realistic way. The exemplary stage offers students the instructor as an example of what is expected of the students. The instructor must become adept at thinking aloud and displaying how to reason things through. Such techniques plunge students into the world of current events while at the same time teaching them critical thinking skills. Fifteen notes are included. Three appendixes (two newspaper editorials and a Hirschean reading exercise) are attached. (Sg)
A war on science( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The theory of evolution is under attack by the increasing number of believers in Intelligent Design. Can science be replaced by God? This documentary gives both sides of the argument and includes accounts from key players in both fields. Although we take the authoritative presence of science as a given in the 21st century, even recently it has been debated in some US schools as to whether or not the theory of evolution should be taught. But if we welcome a supernatural element to the theory of evolution what impact will this have on the progression of a purely scientific understanding of evolution? In the US, The Discovery Institute, current home base for the Intelligent Design movement, is gaining power and has a master plan (backed by George W. Bush) to alter thinking about our origins across the entire country
