Teacher's Guide to the Strasenburgh Planetarium.
Adamus, Richard; And Others
This guide is designed to assist teachers of the intermediate level grades in the preparation of students to visit the Strasenburgh Planetarium. This initial preparation and follow-up are essential because the programs are given to groups of 240 students and consequently there is little opportunity for individual discussion with the planetarium instructor. The materials are coordinated with the five 1968-69 planetarium school programs: (1) Earth, Sun and Moon; (2) All About Planets; (3) Exploring the Universe; (4) Sky-Scanning; and (5) Man in Space. The materials for each program provide statements of student behavioral outcomes, activities for the attainment of these outcomes, selected references, and suggestions for evaluation. Also provided are a description of the planetarium, the services it renders, and the arrangements to be made prior to a visitation. Appended are (1) a bibliography, (2) an extensive list of appropriate audiovisual materials and their sources, (3) a glossary, and (4) an equipment list. This work was prepared under ESEA Title III contract. (RS)
