LaSalle, Donald P., Ed.; And Others
Presented in this teacher's manual are more than 40 energy-related discussions and projects for use in conjunction with secondary school courses in mathematics, science, social studies, and language arts. Designed to help students discover ways to study and conserve energy, the activities also stress alternate energy sources and their applications. Lessons are organized under four categories: (1) energy conservation, (2) solar energy concepts, (3) solar energy applications, and (4) alternate energy sources. Typical among these activities are constructing a solar collector, debating offshore drilling proposals, tracking the sun by computer, and investigating the effects of thermal pollution. Included in the lesson plans are teacher background material, suggestions for lesson preparation, lists of related activities, student handouts, and step-by-step procedures for conducting the activities.
