Energy and Man's Environment: Activity Guide. An Interdisciplinary Teacher's Guide to Energy and Environmental Activities.
Jones, John, Ed.
This publication provides the goals, concepts, objectives, and rationale for the six activity guides in this series of energy education materials. The organization of this series, as presented in this publication, centers around six goals which correspond to the activity guides. Under each goal are several concepts, which in turn, have several objectives. These concepts and goals are referenced above the activities included in the guides. The six goals are: (1) It is essential that each person know that there are many sources of energy; (2) It is essential that each person know that people are dependent upon energy; (3) It is essential that each person know that energy can be converted from one form to another; (4) It is essential that each person know how man's use of energy creates an impact on the environmental and economic systems; (5) It is essential that each person know that the earth's resources are limited; and (6) It is essential that each person know that new energy sources and more efficient systems, accompanied by different consumption practices, may alter the world energy dilemma. This conceptual outline may be of use to teachers, curriculum specialists, and researchers. (MR)
