From the Publisher“Articles present strategies and resources for reforming national science curricula and teacher training as well as for working with primary, secondary, and college students in both developing and developed nations. Helpful ideas for anyone currently teaching, planning to teach, or interested in promoting astronomy in the science curriculum.”
"This is not a book for light reading or glossy pictures but an in-depth, well argued and persuasive text."
"What makes this book special is the care that has gone into articulating why astronomy education is important and why it is necessary to better train and support preservice and in-service science teachers. This book is a must-have for anyone working to add astronomy to any curriculum or to persuade funders to invest in science education. Teaching and Learning Astronomy is a conference proceeding that effectively combines articles on personal experiences in the classroom, massive multi-institute studies, and persuasive rhetoric. It is a book that will give the experienced astronomy educator some novel activities, new resource lists, and well-argued reasons to introduce astronomy to as many minds as possible."
Astronomy Educational Review
"The papers present highly interesting accounts of work in progress or critical reviews of past efforts and form a valuable resource for astronomical education. The sectional editorials are full of wisdom and good sense. [The editors and contributors have] provided a service for all who are working to promote and improve astronomical education." - D. McNally, The Observatory
