Criteria for Effective Energy Education.
Champagne, Audrey B.; Klopfer, Leo E.
This paper outlines a process that can be applied to the analysis or design of instructional programs and materials. The role of values in decision-making is discussed, with special emphasis on desisions concerning energy education. In addition, some criteria are given for effective programs and instructional materials for energy education. This paper addresses the needs of three kinds of decision-makers: (1) purchasers of instructional materials and programs; (2) persons responsible for allocating funds; and (3) designers of materials and programs. Extensive lists of questions, comprising a major portion of this paper, represent the means by which the analyzer can glean appropriate information from instructional material and by which the designer and the funder can check to see that specifications for proposed materials are complete. An instructional unit on energy for elementary schools is included as an example of the application of some of the principles discussed. (Author/BB)
