Jordan, Kenneth; Thessing, Dan
This document is one of five learning packets on alternative energy developed as part of a descriptive curriculum research project in Arkansas (see note). The overall objectives of the learning packets are to improve the level of instruction in the alternative energies by vocational exploration teachers, and to facilitate the integration of new content on energy into existing vocational programs. Each learning packet contains unit objectives, information, transparency masters, lecture outline, suggested activities, student assignment sheets, tests, and answers to the tests. This unit on wind power covers the following topics: introduction to wind power; historical development of wind power in the United States; initial considerations and costs of wind power; the basics of a wind-powered energy conversion system; and the Energy Research and Development Administration wind energy program. A glossary is also provided. (KC)
