Scott Ashmann, associate professor in the Education Program, recently had an article published in Science Scope, the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) journal for middle school science teachers. His article, “A Sun-Earth-Moon Activity to Develop Student Understanding of Lunar Phases and Frames of Reference,” is currently the most popular journal article being downloaded at the NSTA’s online store. In the article, Ashmann describes a set of classroom activities that help students reason their way through the lunar phases by role-playing the relative positions of Earth, Sun, and Moon thereby addressing the common misconception that the phases of the moon are caused by Earth’s shadow.
