Space Awareness, an Adult Education Curriculum Resource Guide. Bulletin No. 71-F-5.
The document was prepared to serve as a guide to adult educators and others interested in specific information relating to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and to provide a source of information of the breadth and scope of space explorations including space benefits to mankind. The course is organized into eight units of study: (1) the beginning of space exploration, (2) rocketry and propulsion systems, (3) unmanned and manned space flight, (4) to the moon and back, (5) Apollo mission results and practical returns from space investment, (6) the space program today--information and available resources, (7) basic scientific concepts relating to the space program, and (8) space programs. The format of each unit is the same: an introduction and rationale, a pre-assessment, and the unit objectives, followed by the unit's content in the form of an outline several pages in length; vocabulary, suggestions for the teacher, a listing of illustrative resources, and a post-assessment conclude each unit. Appended are a glossary, suggested learning activities, and a comprehensive examination. (Author/AJ)
