Project EFFECT. Energy for the Future: Education, Conservation, Training. Curriculum Guide for the Training of Energy Extension Agents. A Working Paper, Section IV: Community Education.
Indiana Univ., South Bend. Center for Energy Conservation.
This fourth of four sections in a curriculum guide for training energy extension agents contains general introductory materials, an overview of the total curriculum, and five modules: Regional Demography, State and Local Government, Community Education, Neighborhood Workshops (Practicum), and Miscellaneous Activities (Practicum)--Placement, Critique. 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. Purpose of this component is to train students through learning experiences involving (1) personal growth, (2) "hands-on" group dymanics and public relations workshops, and (3) academically oriented background studies to design and deliver energy education workshops to the public. Placement activities enable students to identify and follow up job interests. 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 included 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.
