Acerca de


Based on papers presented at a Special Session of the International Astronomical Union at its 2006 General Assembly in Prague, this volume highlights the general strategies for effective teaching of astronomy. It introduces innovative points of view regarding methods of teaching and learning, particularly those using new technologies.


Reviews from Teaching and Learning Astronomy by Jay M. Pasachoff and John R. Percy: '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 ... 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 Education Review

'The editors are enthusiastic and prolific writers and this book is a well presented collection of papers, posters and discussions highlighting the importance of astronomy in national curricula from primary to tertiary level. [This is] an in-depth, well argued and persuasive text which I would hope could be essential reading for any with a remit in science education and particularly curriculum advisers and policy makers in national education. For others this is a reassuring read, seeing that internationally the importance of astronomy education is being realised.' Astronomy Now

'The papers present highly interesting accounts of work in progress or critical reviews of past efforts and form a valuable resource of astronomical education. The sectional editorials are full of wisdom and good sense. [The contributors have] provided a service for all who are working to promote and improve astronomical education.' The Observatory
