Online reading assignment question: Venus, Mars tags (Astrolrner@CAE readers, August 2010)

(Analysis of results reported in "Old Ideas, New Technologies--Harnessing the Power of Web 2.0 Resources for the Weary Instructor" workshop given at the Astronomy Society of the Pacific Cosmos in the Classroom National Symposium on Teaching Astronomy for Non-Science Majors, August 2, 2010, 3:15-4:15 PM, Session A in Eaton 1B80, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO.)

Readers of the Center for Astronomy Education: Improving Astronomy Education Astrolrner@CAE listserv were asked to complete a pre-workshop assignment (hosted by SurveyMonkey.com).

[Responses have been edited to consolidate common related subjects.]

Write down five words or phrases (separated by commas) that describe or are associated with "Venus." Keep words in phrases together with no spaces between them (e.g., "veryhot").
