Agin, Michael Lawrence
Reported is part 2 of a two-part publication which presents the narrative materials for the teaching of the concept--the development of atomic energy and its social implications. This publication is the result of a study to determine the feasibility of teaching scientific concepts related to the social and historical developments of science and selected concepts related to atomic energy. Presented in this section is a consideration of the scientist and his work toward a more sensible administration of atomic energy, as well as some of the benefits and risks of using atomic energy, and the products of atomic energy and what they may have in store for the future. Chapters 11 and 12 are included as well as a narrative quote source list and bibliography. An extensive teacher's guide, giving points to consider and teaching suggestions for each chapter, is included in the manuscript. An annotated bibliography of films used in the unit, available from the Atomic Energy Commission, is presented along with slide narratives. (EB)
