The Classroom Astronomer was a full color, quarterly PDF publication designed as a practitioner journal for classroom teachers of astronomy. While centered at the high school level, it also provides tips, techniques and informative how-to articles for teachers of grades K-8 and undergraduate college "Astro 101" courses. Our mission is to increase the amount of astronomy in the school systems and improve the skills of teachers.
It was published from 2009 until June 2015. Back issues are available in PDF format from our Online Store!
