Solar Energy in the Home. Revised.
Roeder, Allen A.; Woodland, James A.
Recommended for grades 10-12 physical, earth, or general science classes, this 5-7 day unit is designed to give students a general understanding of solar energy and its use as a viable alternative to present energy sources. Along with this technology, students examine several factors of solar energy which influence the choice of solar home site location and construction materials. The unit consists of four daily lesson plans (with rationale, objectives, and instructional strategies provided for each). Fry readability levels for two readings (Introduction to Solar Energy and Energy Efficiency Home Design for the Energy Conscious Consumer), process skills fostered, advanced teacher preparation, goals, objectives, planning guide, and evaluation suggestions are provided in the introduction.
