A Portfolio of Energy Ideas: Social Studies.
Clark, Richard C., Ed.
Presented are 12 social studies units which examine current energy issues and present energy dilemmas for careful study and reflection. The activities emphasize: (1) a range of teaching strategies; (2) problem identification, problem solving, and problem analysis; (3) futures education; (4) students as active learners; and (5) consideration of the thoughts, feelings, and attitudes which the energy situation evokes. These teacher-oriented materials include an overview of each unit, background information, teaching strategies, follow-up activities, evaluation questions, resource materials, and other useful information. Students use brainstorming, large and small group discussion, questionnaires, values clarification techniques, and other similar strategies to examine different energy-related issues. Some of these include lifestyles, social obstacles, laws, media, conservation, energy dependency, alternative energy sources, and regulations. (Author/DC)
