From the things I have written over the years, I include here only those that l want to examine again myself. How well do they hold up, I wonder. More interesting is whether other science educators think they make good sense and are worth the attention of the next generation of science educators.
The papers are listed here in chronological order, although I may not treat them in that order. For each paper, I provide my current evaluation and a direct link to the paper itself.
