For Teachers and About Teachers (and Penguins)

My latest contribution to 10,000 Birds blog is a write up of some very interesting research that addresses the evolutionary history of the Penguin Tuxedo. Check it out. This post also has a handy-dandy downloadable PDF version of itself suitable for use in the classoom.

Also, if you haven’t read this yet, please check it out: Could you sustain the energy level required to be a teacher?
