RASC Publications for Educators
The RASC produces several publications including the annual Observer's Handbook, the Observer's Calendar, and the Beginner's Observing Guide. See our publications for a complete listing.
Skyways (and Explorons l'Astronomie in French), our Astronomy Handbook for Teachers was written specifically for Canadian educators and meets the astronomy learning outcomes outlined in the Common Framework of Science Learning Outcomes (the "Pan-Canadian Protocol"). The book contains instructions for hands-on activities on a wide-range of topics including Seasons, Stars, and the Solar System.
