A Private Universe Project

Philip Sadler, Matthew Schneps, Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

The Private Universe Teachers Lab enables teachers to practice techniques of identifying student misconceptions and moving toward conceptual change in basic astronomy. This teachers lab contains a survey to identify misconceptions and three in-class activities for grades 4 to 8 that help students gain an understanding of the phases of the Moon. There are teacher discussion forums on planning teaching sequences and learning how to adapt activities to different situations.
