Improving the Astronomy in Schools
suggestions of teaching techniques I can use with my kids.
I attended one of Larry's presentations at a GSTA regional conference. He showed me how to relate some of the more perplexing concepts of astronomy in ways my students easily grasped. Had I not been able to use Larry's experience to inform my teaching I would have wasted valuable time looking for the solutions he so clearly provided. Larry Krumenaker is an incredible resource. He provides everything one would want from an in-service workshop: depth of experience in his field, engaging as a presenter, flexible for and responsive to his audience.
highly recommend a "Larry" workshop for anyone interested in an
efficient way to increase the content and pedagogical depth in the
astronomy classroom. �Kevin

Krumenaker helped me to
information and to change some misconceptions that I had about topics
relating to astronomy! His knowledge
astronomy and ideas about how to teach it make him an incredibly
valuable resource. I would recommend
Krumenaker and his services to any teacher who teaches astronomy at any
level. � Lindsay

Larry Krumenaker�s extensive background experience and
in the science of astronomy, physical sciences, and science education
was the backbone of our collaborative work with teachers, students and
administrators at Taliaferro County K-12 school as part of a DOE
Improving Teacher Quality Grant.
