This is the teacher's guide to accompany the student guide which together comprise one of five computer-oriented environmental/energy education units. The computer program, ENERGY, at the base of this unit, simulates the pattern of energy consumption in the United States. The total energy demand is determined by energy use in the various sectors such as the industrial sector, the transportation sector, the utilities sector, and so on. The demand for energy is shown to grow exponentially in each sector. Students are asked to balance supply of energy with demand by adjusting factors in each sector. This teacher's guide presents: (1) suggestions on introducing the unit; (2) student guide exercises and answers; (3) follow-up activities; and (4) an annotated source list. This unit is appropriate for social studies and environmental education courses grades 9 through 14. (MR)
