Project EFFECT. Energy for the Future: Education, Conservation, Training. Curriculum Guide for the Training of Energy Extension Agents. A Working Paper, Section 1: General Background.
Indiana Univ., South Bend. Center for Energy Conservation.
This first of four sections in a curriculum guide for training energy extension agents contains general introductory materials, an overview of the total curriculum, and four modules: Orientation, Mathematics Review, Basic Writing, and Energy Overview. The curriculum is designed for adults with at least eighth grade reading and math skills but without previous technical training. Following a brief description of the project which developed the curriculum (Project EFFECT--Energy for the Future: Education, Conservation, Training), these supplementary materials are provided: energy extension agent competencies, core curriculum outline, and class calendar for the eight-month program. The modules in this section serve a dual purpose--diagnostic and introductory. A systematic review using these materials is based on student performance on provided writing and mathematics pretests. The fourth module itself introduces students to the technical, socio-political, and economic aspects of the energy situation and provides them with pertinent vocabulary. Contents of each module include objectives; teaching/learning activities, resources, and evaluation (quizzes and examinations) keyed to the objectives; and syllabi containing descriptions of content on a class-by-class basis. Also available in ERIC are a volume containing sample worksheets, handouts, and examinations for each module as well as full references to all outside sources needed; other sections of the guide; and a final report of the project--see Note.
