Concept Cartoons About Evolution


Concept Cartoons About Evolution

Logo for Concept Cartoons About Evolution
These concept cartoons were developed by Dianne Anderson and Kathleen Fisher (2002) as prompts for eliciting discussion about ideas in evolution. They can also be used as assessment tools. The cartoons are best suited for college non-majors and pre-college classes. The incorrect statements in the cartoons are derived from common naive conceptions. They are useful to encourage classroom discussions about common misconceptions.

I really like these cartoons as a different way to assess my students on what they have learned so far about evolution.  It could be a good formative assessment for high school students.  I do not believe my middle school students know enough about evolution to be able to make even an educated guess.  However, I am planning on using them throughout the unit in order to assess my students' learning.  I think using the cartoons as an assessment will engage the students.
