Weekend update: Science of Science Communication 2.0 -- Tamar Wilner confronts the "belief-comprehension" question in teaching evolutionary science
Showing why she has come to be kown as the "science communication honeybadger," Tamar Wilner bites into the #scicomm puff adder issue of what's the goal -- "belief" or "comprehension" -- question for teaching evolution.
This was one of the central questions posed by the Session 10 reading materials.
I've only posted an image of the beginning of her essay-- go to her site to read it. I will leave the comment field open here, though, in case anyone wants to share their reaction (if they disagree with Tamar, I'm not responsible for her devouring them with the enthusiasm that a honeybadger displays for sticking her face into a hive of angry bees so she can have a nice larvae desert after her main course of poisonous snake).
