Energy Crisis. Teaching Resources. A Special Publication Suggesting School Activities Which Stress Individual Responsibility Towards Energy Crisis Problems.
Curry, Wendell; And Others
This handbook provides public school teachers and administrators of Oregon with teaching ideas and information about the energy crisis. Suggested activities are intended to inform students (kindergarten through community college) about their responsibility toward the energy crisis and to motivate energy conservation. The handbook is divided into four sections. Section I gives background information on the energy crisis, with emphasis on energy in the Pacific Northwest. Sample lesson plans in energy conservation are outlined in Section II. Most plans are interdisciplinary with emphasis on math, science, and social studies. Sections III and IV suggest all-school activities and home activities for energy conservation. A resource list of energy crisis speakers in Oregon is provided, as well as checklists for energy conservation in homes and school buildings. A glossary of terms and a reference reading list are included in the appendices. (Author/RM)
