A Teacher's Guide for the Environmental Impact of Electrical Power Generation: Nuclear and Fossil. A Minicourse for Secondary Schools and Adult Education. Teacher's Guide.
McDermott, John J., Ed.
According to this guide, the major goal of this minicourse, developed for secondary and adult education, is to have the student gather pertinent information relative to the generation of electrical energy and to draw his own conclusions concerning the need for this energy supply. If in his mind such a need exists, he should make a judgment as to the methods by which the energy should be produced. The job of the teacher is to "tell it like it is" and then to encourage the student to make his own judgments based on the evaluation of this information. Each chapter of this teacher's guide corresponds to a chapter in the text. There are five sections in each chapter dealing with behavioral objectives, suggested activities for that chapter, audiovisual aids, references, and selected readings to provide background material for the teacher. At the end of the teacher's guide is a decision-making model to help the reader analyze the information he has received. There are three appendixes: the first concerning laboratory safety rules for working with radioactive substances, the second containing names and addresses of environmental action organizations, and the third an achievement test.
