A Sourcebook for Energy and the Way We Live. Courses by Newspaper.
The guide presents teaching suggestions and lists resources to be used with the twelfth Course by Newspaper, "Energy and the Way We Live." Courses by Newspaper is a program presenting college-level courses to the public through the cooperation of newspapers and participating colleges. Other components of this course are the Article Booklet (SO 012 723) and the Reader/Study Guide (SO 012 724). The guide is divided into four sections. Section I describes how to use this course, including a list of national participating organizations, and a statement of objectives and needed planning. Section II offers teaching suggestions for 15 lessons focusing on our energetic lifestyle, the energy crisis, the history of energy use, waste, recent energy patterns, use in other countries, international politics relating to energy, nuclear and solar energy, synthetic fuels, and future choices and tradeoffs. Each lesson includes suggestions for background readings from the Reader/Study Guide, periodicals, and books, as well as discussion questions and activity suggestions. The activities make heavy use of experts as speakers and films, but also include making an ongoing rating chart, a questionnaire, and an energy index; debating; and making comparisons. Section III presents an annotated list of national organizations and their publications, while Section IV annotates the films suggested in the lessons. (CK)
