New Year, New Blog!
Happy New Year!
There's nothing like the start of a new year to hit the blog reset button. At the end of last year, I spent some time talking with Lana's readers, teachers, librarians, and astronomy lovers about what they want to hear about. Here's what they told me:
1. Lana's Readers want:
--Latest updates on the Lana book series
--Book club suggestions
--Stargazing info (objects to look for in the night sky)
--Games, Puzzles, and DIY activities
--Stuff Lana likes (such as vegan food recipes and where to find the best flip flops)
--News about girls (and boys!) doing cool stuff
2. Teachers and Librarians/Media Specialists want:
--News about the Lana book series as it relates to state standards for education
--Info on planetariums and observatories near their schools
--News about innovations in STEM teaching and school technology
--Free astronomy resources
--Classroom discussion topics relating to astronomy
--Anything that helps them inspire kids to take an interest in astronomy
3. Astronomy lovers want:
--Astronomy news and events
--Space trivia to impress their friends with
--Advice on telescopes and other stargazing gear
--Deep Thinking Questions (DTQs?) to ponder about the Universe
--Astronomy photos that WOW them
You know what I told them? Done! Stay tuned!
