Force and Energy: A Teacher's Manual for General Level Program Development, Grade 8. Science and Society Teaching Units. Informal Series/25.
Orpwood, Graham W. F.; Roberts, Douglas A.
Developed as the second in a series, this teacher's manual is designed to assist junior high school teachers in developing general level or non-academic science programs which focus on the relationship between science and society. Seven episodes comprise three sections: energy systems, hydroelectricity, and meeting society's energy needs. Each episode begins with a curriculum summary which outlines the content, teaching essentials, objectives, and evaluation examples. This is followed by a detailed description of how to teach the lesson. The appendices contain teacher and student resource sheets. All episodes are tied together by a story line which helps students understand that they can assess the social consequences of choices about energy consumption only if they possess the necessary concepts.
