An Educator's Guide to the Three Es: Energy, Ecology, Economics.
Campbell, Sally R.
The booklet presents concepts, generalizations, background information, and learning activities for use in elementary and secondary school programs on energy, ecology, and economic issues. Major objectives of the resource guide are to help students understand problems related to the energy situation and to promote constructive changes in attitude and behavior in dealing with the energy challenge. Learning activities involve students in discussing key concepts such as fuel supplies and energy policies, defining terms, taking multiple-choice tests, writing research papers, identifying conservation measures, devising steps to implement energy conservation, participating in group projects, drawing cartoons, posters, and energy timelines, debating energy policies, and setting up water and energy saving guidelines. Grade level is identified for each learning activity. A directory of private organizations and government agencies involved in economics and/or ecology and energy concludes the booklet. (DB)
