8. A Student Exploration Exercise for ASTRO 101 - This exercise is an early class assignment to encourage the students to explore the components of my ASTRO 101 class, including the course syllabus, the course webpage, and finding my office for future help. First used in the Fall 2013 semester, this exercise is in "alpha" version, so your mileage may vary signficantly. The exploration exercise is avaialbe here.

7. A student behavioral survey to be used before the first exam - Like many Astro 101 instructors, we have noticed the very low grades on the first class exam, followed up by a large improvement on the second exam. To encourage students to begin studying early, we administer this intentionally informal and humorous behavioral survey. We find that many students will check all of the answers, but the key goal is to get them to change their behavior before the exam, not answer the questions accurately. Our version of the survey is here (PDF) or here (DOC), but we would encourage ASTRO 101 instructors to design their own survey, using student feedback from previous semesters.

6. Using Ob-Scertainers in a large astronomy classroom. Inspired by David Wittman (UC Davis), we now use these small disks to help teach the scientific method. Our handout is given here and the answer sheet is given here. Of course, if you buy your own Ob-Scertainers, you will need to create your own color scheme for the disks - this is just an example. The PowerPoint slides we show in class are available here.

5. Poster: Improving Perfomance in a Learner-Centered Astronomy 101 Class - Our poster regarding student perceptions of learner-centered methods over a 7 year period. The poster is available in PDF format here


4. Ranking and Sorting tasks for ASTRO 101 Classes - Ranking Tasks are a conceptual activity to compare one physical situation to another. In astronomy 101 classes, they have been pioneered by David Hudgins, Ed Prather, Diane Grayson and Derck Smits (see paper here)

Below are some ranking and sorting tasks I have created for my own classes. These are drafts, and I would appreciate feedback on how to improve them: 3. Celestial Hemisphere Model - instructions as to how to build a simple display that will help students in the Lecture Tutorials for Astronomy, specifically the "Position and Motion" Lecture Tutorials. In the second edition, the figure it represents is on pages 1, 3 and 4. Display designed and built by YSU undergraduate Deidra Nuss

2. Display for Path of the Sun Lecture Tutorial - instructions as to how to build a simple display that will help students in the Lecture Tutorials for Astronomy, specifically the "Path of the Sun" Lecture Tutorial. In the second edition, the figure it represents is on page 88. Display designed and built by YSU undergraduate Deidra Nuss

1. Letter Cards for Peer Instruction - A single sheet with the colored letters A, B,C, D on them, used for Peer Instruction. Useful for when you don't have personal responders ("clickers") available, but you do have a color printer. See http://scitation.aip.org/journals/doc/AJPIAS-ft/vol_70/iss_6/639_1-div0.html , Figure 1 for an example of similar cards in action. See here and here for more detailed information about Peer Instruction in Physics and Astronomy. I'd like to thank Pete Marenfeld at NOAO for helping me design this sheet.
