AB: The Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) is leading the U.S. IYA signature effort in teacher professional development called the Galileo Teacher Training Program (GTTP). The program is developing a workshop model designed to help teachers teach the process of science to their students using Galileo's iconic observations, and provides training in additional resources adaptable to the classroom--undertaking the effort in partnership with the New Jersey Astronomy Center for Education (NJACE). The presenter will report on results of the initial pilot workshop held in September, plans for future workshops and for sustaining the program for the longer term, and the status of related ASP IYA educational efforts designed to build sustainable programs for improving science and astronomy education and science literacy going forward.
