Lunar Shapes and Shadows: What Are the Sources of Our Instructional Ideas?
Cohen, Michael R.; Lucas, Keith B.
The paper identifies possible factors associated with changes in style and presentation of diagrams of lunar phases and eclipses in school textbooks and other resources. Science curriculum resource materials used extensively during the past two hundred and fifty years in North America and Australia provide insights into teaching and learning of science, with particular emphasis on primary and lower secondary grades. Several different "lenses" are employed to provide a range of complementary perspectives (historical, geographical, cultural, epistemological, and pedagogical) and to discuss implications for teaching and these topics.
