Energy Education Resource Guide for Driver Education.
This guide is designed to help driver education teachers in Iowa to integrate energy conservation education into the traditional high school driver education course. Following an explanation of the necessity for teaching energy conservation with driver education, the course guide is divided into seven units. The units cover vehicle selection, vehicle maintenance, vehicle operation, environmental conditions, traffic strategies, planning for savings, and exploiting alternative methods of transporation. Each unit contains an information section, transparency master, learning exercise, learning aids, true/false learning exercises and feedback, and a test with answers. Materials are suitable for reproduction and handout to students. The appendix contains a list of fuel-efficient instruction techniques, a guide and test to the film "Running on Empty," Kodalith instructions and slide masters, flowcharts, and a bibliography. (KC)
