IAU astronomy literacy booklet

The IAU has produced an astronomy literacy booklet that is downloadable as a pdf. It is a rather interesting document - take a look.

This is a useful guide. We are looking at designing a course for beginners in astronomy at my local society, and this may well be a helpful "curriculum" on which to base sessions or discussions. Really helpful, thanks for highlighting.
