This is the plan I put together for her, with her help. We decided on a spine, a hands-on manual, several reading selections, and a couple of documentary series.
* Main Astronomy Spine *
- Astronomy: A Self-Teaching Guide- as recommended in The Well-Trained Mind, this Wiley guide will be the spine of her study.
* Hands-On Observing *
- Binocular Highlights: 99 Celestial Sights for Binocular Users - We already had this on hand, which is always a plus. I plan to schedule one night a week for stargazing, using this book to help. We'll see how that goes! Staying up late isn't exactly my cup of tea, but I think it could be a really fun year if we were able to dedicate that much time to stargazing.
* Readings *
I plan to have her read through these books, one at a time, in any order she likes. I came up with a list of possibilities and she chose these six.
