Science has many compelling and fascinating stories, and thinking about teaching science through the use of narratives can be a rewarding idea for educators. This particular classroom exercise was peer-reviewed by participants at the 2007 "Preparing Teachers to Teach Earth Science Workshop" at Carleton College, and was authored by B.R. Bickmore and D.A. Grandy of Brigham Young University. The exercise is designed to help students gain a more sophisticated conception of the nature of science as well as to help students "become more able to critically and insightfully address science-religion conflict." The site contains further teaching notes and tips, learning goals, and the actual essay that is used in this particular exercise.
