Energy. Nebraska Home Economics Energy Management Guide.
Nickisch, Marge Hill
The Nebraska Home Economics Energy Management Guide is composed of 25 individual lessons in 5 units plus a resource section. The introductory unit discusses basic principles in decision-making, the historical development of energy sources and use, and the rationale for energy management. The next four units focus on energy management in housing, foods, clothing, and family living. To help teachers gain the most from the guide, each individual lesson includes: (1) objectives; (2) background information; (3) student activities; (4) resources used in the preparation of the lesson; and (5) suggestions for additional class activities. The resource section includes a bibliography, audio-visual suggestions, and visuals (full page illustrations) suitable for duplication onto paper or for use as overhead projector transparencies.
