Energy Concepts in the Iowa School Curriculum.
Gerlovich, Jack A.
This document reports on the Iowa Department of Public Instruction plan to integrate energy education into elementary and secondary programs. This plan includes the development of energy conservation activity packets. The packets contain a variety of interdisciplinary activities, accompanying worksheets, visuals, and annotated children and teacher bibliographies for grades K-6. Also included in the plan is the Mankato State University Energy Program which is designed to acquaint teachers with some classroom projects that can be done by students in grades 7-12, and give teachers an extended classroom project in which students evaluate the energy consumption of their school. Finally, this report presents the results of a questionnaire designed to assess the present energy programs and perceived energy needs of Iowa secondary school teachers. The dominant concerns of the teachers surveyed were energy conservation and the political and social aspects of energy problems. (BB)
