 Understanding the Cosmos: A New Science-Related Teacher Resource from
 the Library of Congress
 
 A Library's Teacher blog post 
 
 http://blogs.loc.gov/teachers/2014/02/understanding-the-cosmos-a-new-science-related-teacher-resource-from-the-library-of-congress/
 
 announces the launch of the Librarys
 newest primary source set, Understanding the Cosmos: Changing Models
 of the Solar System and the Universe,
 
 http://www.loc.gov/teachers/classroommaterials/primarysourcesets/understanding-the-cosmos/?loclr=blogtea
 
 Teachers and students can
 explore these models and the astronomers who created them. More than
 a dozen drawings, illustrations, and heavenly atlases from across the
 centuries invite students to zoom in on and examine details.
 Historical background and teaching ideas support teachers as they
 guide students in speculating about these documents creators, the
 ideas they developed, and methods and principles that even today are
 common to scientists across disciplines. 
 
 
 Contact Rich Cairn, Director, Collaborative for Educational Services
 Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program if you are
 interested in setting up free professional development on this
 resource.
