Heliophysics Concept Maps: Mini-Atlas of Heliophysics Literacy
This document outlines three sets of concepts to form a “Mini-Atlas of Heliophysics Literacy” in order to: 1) provide a way for Heliophysics Education and Public Outreach professionals to understand how their formal education (including higher education) and informal education products tie to general overarching Heliophysics concepts, and 2) provide a way for educators or curriculum designers to tie Heliophysics concepts together with related science concepts. The AAAS Atlas of Science Literacy strand maps have been used as templates for several of the Heliophysics concept maps. One main difference, however, between the AAAS Atlas of Science Literacy strand maps and the Heliophysics Mini-Atlas is that the strand maps only cover concepts for grades K-12. The Mini-Atlas of Heliophysics Literacy includes K-12 concepts and those that extend to higher education.
