Energy Education: Why, What and How?
Bauman, Paul C.; Petrock, Edith M.
Written for state- and local-level education policy makers, educators, political and consumer organizations, and representatives of business and industry, this document stresses the importance of energy education and ways to incorporate energy education into different curriculum structures. It does not attempt to provide specific answers or solutions to the many energy-related questions facing society, but suggests how these important issues can be approached in an objective learning environment. Section one provides background data on energy issues. Section two describes six fundamental objectives of energy education and provides a rationale for each. The last section identifies several guidelines for state and local action, stressing low-cost alternatives. The appendix lists selected sources of information that may be useful in developing and implementing energy education programs. (Author/DC)
