Energy Education and the School Curriculum. Research Report 1980-2.
National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
Since the nation's schools can play a major role in encouraging energy conservation, an energy curriculum should cover four objectives: (1) generating an awareness of energy conserns, (2) fostering the development of responsible energy use habits, (3) preparing students for energy-related careers, and (4) creating an understanding of international energy issues. Presented in this report is a primer for school districts interested in developing an energy curriculum. It focuses on objectives, benefits, successful programs, and steps school boards can take to implement programs and gain community support. Also included are appendices containing a bibliography of energy education materials, a state-by-state listing of contacts and resources, and a guide to federal assistance. (Author/WB)
