  • The Classroom Astronomer Magazine was a quarterly PDF publication designed as a practitioner journal for classroom teachers of astronomy. While centered at the high school level, it also provided tips, techniques and informative how-to articles for teachers of grades K-8 and undergraduate college "Astro 101" courses, and others. The magazine's mission was to increase the amount of astronomy in the school systems and improve the skills of teachers.
