Energy and Transportation Lessons for the Senior High Grades.
Parker, Francis; Yoho, Devon
This guide presents five lessons designed to: create an awareness of the present energy situation and its relation to various aspects of transportation systems; provide knowledge of energy resources, choices, and alternative actions; develop critical thinking skills about energy and individual roles in the energy management process; encourage problem-solving habits as students examine alternative solutions to energy and transportation issues; and influence participation as students practice consumer roles and decision-making in their homes, school, and community. These lessons focus on: energy, transportation, and the growth of cities; public transporation alternatives for energy saving; automobiles and energy conservation; alternatives to the automobile (e.g., electric and natural gas cars); and aviation. Each lesson includes an overview (which provides inquiry, decision-making, and action objectives; and states the lesson's purpose, time needed, and the readability of student materials); a glossary; a factsheet (providing background material for completing other activities); classroom activities; a case study (presenting a problem or issue for students to discuss); a home study; a community study; a section exploring the short-, intermediate-, and long-range future of issues/problems presented in the lesson; a career-oriented activity; and a list of resources. A list of social studies, government, and economics textbooks with energy and transportation concepts and the page numbers on which they appear is also provided. (JN)
