Energy Conservation Education Leadership Institute. Final Report, Volume I [And] Volume II.
Florida State Univ., Tallahassee.
The document presents the final report of a summer institute to help high school classroom teachers develop and implement energy education programs. The document is presented in two volumes. Volume I contains workshop objectives, the program schedule, a list of participants, and evaluation results. Major objectives were to familiarize participants with the energy crisis and related policy issues; develop understanding of energy conservation strategies; introduce teachers to energy-related instructional materials; and create linkages between teachers, university scholars, and state energy personnel. Participants were involved in analyzing films, examining instructional materials for bias, writing educational strategies, and touring local energy plants. Topics discussed by conference speakers included state energy agency concerns, perspectives on the energy crisis, basic energy concepts, energy futures, national energy policy, coal resources, alternative energy sources, and ethical issues related to energy. Evaluative comments indicated that a majority of participants enjoyed and learned a great deal about energy from participation in the workshop. Volume II presents suggestions by participants for involving students in energy management programs in schools, a quiz on energy, and a sample audit. Also presented are 36 sample lessons on energy related topics including utility bills, products and energy, energy awareness, and school energy consumption. (DB)
