hm Science Study Skills Program: People, Energy, and Appropriate Technology. Teacher's Guide.
Wilson, Carol; Krasnow, Gary
This program includes 14 activity-oriented units which integrate instruction in science study skills with hands-on learning about energy and appropriate technology. The program is suitable for use in a wide range of science curricula in grades 7 to 10. Units focus on such topics as the meaning of the word "appropriate," what makes technology appropriate, non-renewable and renewable energy, technology and the environment, using energy efficiently, life cycle costing, the solar greenhouse, storing energy, conserving energy, and solar and wind collectors. The final unit is a class project which permits students to use many of the skills they have learned. These skills include listening, building science vocabulary, reading for meaning, taking effective notes, making judgments, interpreting charts and graphs, problem solving, test taking, using scientific measuring tools, applying laws, working with the metric system, working in scientific notation, and developing and testing hypotheses. This teacher's guide (which includes facsimiles of all pages in the student text) includes instructional strategies and practical suggestions for both the experienced and inexperienced teacher. (JN)
