(Aug. 4-5; 8:30 am-5:00 pm; DoubleTree Hotel Reid Park, Tucson, Ariz.)
In this workshop, participants will explore classroom-tested, standards-based astronomy activities, with a focus on the solar system. Participants will learn about the development of students’ understanding of science and science reasoning skills, and explore historical and multicultural perspectives on astronomy. Discussion will also cover how astronomy and space science fit into the new science framework and standards, and how to teach about recent developments in the exploration of the universe.
Registration is $75 (a limited number of scholarships are still available), and includes the new Universe at Your Fingertips DVD, which contains a collection of 133 classroom-ready activities. A certificate of participation will be awarded to participants, for proof of professional advancement. For more information and to register, visit http://bit.ly/IbX6is.
