How to teach astronomy

Astronomy is enjoying a huge revival, thanks in part to Stargazing Live, with GCSE astronomy saved from the scrap heap and local astronomy and science clubs seeing great surges in membership. For teachers wanting to harness all this enthusiasm, the Guardian Teacher Network has some stellar resources for stargazers of all ages.

This is the first time that I see something like this... I know its old but...

Is the perfect opportunity to have an introduction to the world of astronomy. Of course, there are other basic methods (hi Google!), But ... the best way is the class room, in proffesional hands. (no like the amateurs of the high school of this city... pffff)

Thanks for the info Geoff <3
