The Design and Development of a Curriculum in Energy Conservation to Train Secondary and Post-Secondary Vocational Students.
Orsak, Charles; Green, C. Paul
Designed for practical hands-on secondary and postsecondary vocational programs and adult/continuing education programs, this eleven-module curriculum was developed to equip both male and female students with the capabilities to identify, monitor, manage, and curb energy usage in their daily lives and vocational pursuits. It is intended for use as support material for existing related curricula. Each module may be used independently, collectively with the other modules in a course or program on energy conservation, or integrated into conventional courses. Topics include (1) awareness of the energy dilemma, (2) surveying energy usage, (3) understanding utility bills, (4) how to search for energy conservation opportunities, (5) lighting conservation opportunities, (6) hot water heating conservation opportunities, (7) appliance energy conservation opportunities, (8) building construction versus energy consumption, (9) human comfort and energy conservation, (10) heating, ventilating, and air conditioning conservation opportunities, and (11) economics of energy conservation. Each module is divided into units to give the instructor flexibility in selecting support materials. The basic format for the modules is module description, goal statement, and unit outlines with specific objectives. (YLB)
