Title Bar - Cosmology

A Teacher's Guide to the Universe

An Introduction

This Web Page was designed for high school teachers, or educators of the same level, who are interested in teaching astronomy and cosmology to their students. The following lesson plans were designed over several months in collaboration with Professor David Spergel of the Department of Astrophysics of Princeton University and Dr. Margaret Fels, Center for Teaching and Learning at Princeton University, to enrich high school classrooms with astronomy lesson plans according to guidelines suggested by the Core Curriculum Content Standards of the State of New Jersey and by the National Science Education Standards.
