ENCORE: Energy Conservation Resources for Education.

This publication contains the energy education materials for middle schools from project ENCORE (Energy Conservation Resources for Education). These modules were originally field tested in Texas schools during the 1976-77 academic year. The revised materials in this publication are organized into four major units and thirteen chapters. The chapters provide objectives, informational coverage of topics, activities, and vocabulary lists for students. "Suggestions to the Teacher" sections provide lists of materials, tests, scoring keys, resource lists, and media aids suggestions. The information and activities were designed for use in middle and junior high school industrial arts and science classes. These materials can also be used in other subject areas when exploring energy-related topics. The four major sections are: (1) Introduction; (2) Energy Sources and Energy Production; (3) Energy Conservation; and (4) Alternative Energy Sources. Chapter titles include: (1) Energy in Texas; (2) Environmental Quality and Energy; (3) Energy Saving Tips; (4) Solar Energy; (5) Unusual Energy Sources; and (6) Grow Your Own Garden. Although the materials were written for use in Texas, they may easily be adapted to other areas. (Author/MR)
