The Effects of a One-Day Energy Workshop on Science Teachers' Attitudes Toward Energy-Related Topics.
Dunlop, David L.; Fazio, Frank
Examines the effects of a one-day Department of Energy sponsored workshop on the energy conservation attitudes of four groups (N=60) of science teachers (K-8). Content included information in the area of energy resources and energy education. Information was presented in the form of mini-lectures, slide presentations, discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on activities. A pre/post 24 item Likert-type instrument was utilized with items categorized into the following groups: (1) Business/Industry; (2) Government; and (3) Personal/Individual. Significant changes in overall pre/post scores occurred across the board. It was concluded that workshops of this type can cause "positive" shifts in participants attitudes toward energy related attitudes. (DS)
