The Core Standards are encouraging literature in all subject areas, not just English class. As a science teacher this may not come easily. I am sharing an article titled "The Evolution of Birds". This explores similarities among birds and reptiles- suggesting that birds are the direct descendants of dinosaurs- focusing on the Archaeopteryx and the 2003 discovery of dinosaur collagen which was sequenced. The students are required to read the article, answer 5 questions, and do some analysis writing.

Where does this fit in?

Use this article to emphasize the evidence of evolution (homologous structures and biological molecules).
