The Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) has created this website to share key educational resources in the field of astronomy with educators, students, and members of the general public. First-time visitors should take a look at "The Universe in the Classroom," the ASP's newsletter for teachers. Visitors can peruse their archive of past editions, and they will find titles such as "A Silent Cry for Dark Skies" and "A Flag for Mars." Moving along, the Selected Resource Guides area features background reading from a number of annotated astronomical bibliographies. The subjects covered here include the moon, Galileo, and black holes. The site also includes a catalog of helpful astronomy apps for smartphones and tablets, along with some fine suggestions for teaching introductory astronomy to college non-science majors.
