Energy and the Way We Live. A Courses by Newspaper Reader.
Kranzberg, Melvin, Ed.; And Others
This book of readings and a study guide on energy is part of the twelfth Course by Newspaper, "Energy and the Way We Live." Courses by Newspaper is a program presenting college-level courses to the public through the cooperation of newspapers and participating colleges. Other components of this course are the Source Book (SO 012 722) and the Article Booklet (SO 012 723). The book is divided into two parts consisting of 74 readings and a student study guide relating to the readings. The readings explore the wide-ranging dimensions of the U.S. energy debate by focusing on the nature and character of the energy crisis and its implications for our way of life. They are presented in four parts entitled the current energy dilemma, lessons from our past, energy and values, and alternative scenarios for our energy future. Appendices offer notes about the authors, suggestions for further reading, and a glossary. The study guide coordinates the readings with the newspaper articles in the Article Booklet and the lessons in the Source Book. Sections are divided into the same sections as the readings. Each section lists learning objectives, offers an overview of the lessons, defines key concepts and words, asks 25-75 factual review questions, and suggests 4-7 discussion questions. (CK)
