Rebecca Z. German

University of Chicago Press

This chapter offers insights into the author's experience as a student of paleobiology during the 1970s. It suggests that the author's relationship with her mentors including David Raup, Tom Schopf, and Stephen Jay Gould highlights the role of pedagogy during the paleobiological revolution. This chapter also discusses how formal and informal instruction shaped the next generation of paleobiologists and provides a glimpse of the field not normally accessible through published research.

Keywords:   paleobiology, mentors, David Raup, Tom Schopf, Stephen Jay Gould, pedagogy, paleobiological revolution, informal instruction
