|Recent insights into familiar (but mistaken) stories about science.|
Here we aim to update important historical narratives that frequently enter textbooks or the lore of science education. Most histories are more complex--and hence far more interesting--than typical anecdotes suggest. The effective teacher--like good historians and sociologists--learns to analyze the rhetorical and political implications of our stories, the implicit "moral" of each history, and the motivations and credibility of any author.
