Energy Education: A Catalog of Resources.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Atmospheric Science Research Center.; New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This list of energy resource materials is broken down into five categories: (1) general resources; (2) electricity; (3) nuclear and fossil fuels; (4) conservation; and (5) future fuels. (An added feature for New York residents is a concluding list of resources available gratis from New York electric companies). Materials cited include audiovisual aids, charts, activities, books, experiments, games, booklets, and periodicals. Each entry is annotated to show its potential value and use in the classroom. Appropriate grade levels are suggested, but these will vary with the locale and the way the material is employed. Only those items thought to be significantly helpful to students and/or teachers are included. Each resource is evaluated as strongly recommended for student use without restrictions, recommended for student use under teacher guidance, or recommended for teacher reference. Two matrices are also provided. A grade level-topic matrix enables users to find resources on a specific energy topic appropriate for a given instructional level. A grade level-resource matrix enables users to locate for a given instructional level the kinds of curricular materials that which will best complement intended energy lessons. (JN)
