This is the teacher's guide to accompany the student guide which together comprise one of five computer-oriented environmental/energy education units. This unit explores the possible effects of the thirteen main energy-related decisions proposed in President Ford's 1975 State of the Union Address. The computer program at the base of the unit simulates the effects of any combination of the decisions on energy supply and consumption, on domestic production and reserves, and on pollution. This unit is designed for grades 9 through 12 and can be used in social studies or in environmental science. The teacher's guide presents: (1) unit objectives; (2) background information on the lessons or parts of the unit along with study questions; (3) notes on using the unit in class; and (4) program documentation with a sample run.
