With so much confusion today about how life originated, Living Fossils, by Dr. Carl Werner, brings a ray of light into the educational community with non-biased scientific data to explore Darwin’s theory of evolution, present prejudices in the scientific community, and the significance of fossils. The author does a fabulous job of helping the student develop discernment in regards to how we interpret fossilized remains. It’s wonderful to find a book that examines this material in detail for students from junior high to college level that actually pays attention to the data rather than trying to adhere to a politically correct myth.
The teacher’s manual provides chapter objectives, class discussion questions and tests and answers that complement the textbook perfectly. Now students can test their knowledge through true/false, fill-in-the-blank, and short answer questions.
In addition, there are other teacher-friendly tools such as a test record and perforated pages that can be easily removable if you want to administer tests outside the paperbound book.
Since I believe everyone should have to take a science course that includes the Living Fossils textbook, I recommend the Living Fossils Teacher’s Manual highly enough!
