Draw on the wit and wisdom of brilliant scientists to inspire your students as you teach them about a challenging area of biology. This teacher’s guide, which accompanies the EVO DVD, is structured around 10 fundamental questions about biological evolution. The teachers guide explores the DVD’s commentary from some of the world’s most well-known biologists, who gathered on the Galápagos Islands during a World Summit on Evolution and were interviewed about everything from what evolution is to how it happens to why anyone should care. While the video from the natural world provides students with vivid examples of the ideas and processes the biologists describe, the classroom experiences further support and develop students’ understanding of a scientifically-supported theory and its applications. The rigorously structured teachers guide helps you maximize the video with lesson-by-lesson learning outcomes; thorough background; and guidance on preparing for and then leading the lesson—from initial student engagement through evaluation. Engaging, easy to use, and authoritative, EVO Teachers Guide and its DVD are must-have resources.
The EVO DVD and EVO Teachers Guide are also available for individual sale.

“10 wonderful chapters (each running about 10 minutes) provide a picture book of evolution, crammed with remarkable images and well-known narrators. … The graphics are memorable, especially the use of the human arm as a visual timeline for evolution. … An additional teaching utility, “Hooks,” accompany each chapter—Rodger Bybee’s “Engage” step from the five E’s. Another outstanding feature is the addition of “sticky notes” to highlight the most important concepts. This video is a must-have.”
The American Biology Teacher, May 2012
“This educational film manages to deliver advanced scientific concepts in a way that is both entertaining and accessible for a general audience. … Overall, EVO Ten Questions Everyone Should Ask about Evolution offers a clear, informative, and provocative exploration of evolution appropriate for youth and adults, and it's likely to inspire deep thought as well as lively debate.”
