Evolution for John Doe: Pictures, the Public, and the Scopes Trial Debate

http://www.indiana.edu/~jah/teaching/2001_03/article.pdf

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: This article about the Scopes Trial appeared in the Spring 2001 Journal of American History. It has a wealth of primary material and offers discussion about why this trial is studied as a critical clash of two diverging strands of American society in the 1920's. Areson Clark argues that the images drawn from the 1925 Scopes trial convey two main themes. First, the ideas we take for granted as obvious "common sense" have historical roots. Second, much of our common knowledge comes from ideas we associate with science, and historical analysis helps us explore the connections between such uses of science and modern religious and secular values. Standards 11.5.2 and 11.3.2

Comments: The language of the article is high level but it would be excellent in an AP U.S. History class. See also http://www.law.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/scopes/scopes.htm
