The Energy and Conservation Education Glossary.
Dalton, Ed; And Others
The glossary of approximately 700 energy-related terms provides a useful resource to K-12 classroom teachers and curriculum developers for teaching basic energy concepts and skills. In addition, developers of the glossary suggest that it can help teachers develop supplementary language and word games for students, such as crossword puzzles. The terms are arranged alphabetically and space is provided at the end of each alphabetic section so that additional words and definitions can be added. Although the major focus of the glossary is energy resources, it also includes brief definitions of common concepts, principles, and expressions related to conservation. The glossary concludes with a form requesting that readers propose new words or suggest changes in existing content. (DB)
