  1. Emily Dennis,

    Your fine article on separating science from hype was forwarded to me. One of my specialties is teaching science to non-science-major university students. I spend about 10% of the curriculum teaching them to tell good science from bad or pseudoscience. Our suggestions overlap quite a bit. Mine are all posted; you’re welcome to use or quote them:

    • Thanks so much! Gabrielle and I had a really fun time writing it- and being from a really religious area of the midwest, it’s a topic that’s near and dear to my heart. Your course outline looks great! I wish I had had something like that when I was in high school, I had to figure it out all on my own.

      Thanks again and keep up the good work!
