Energy education units (consisting of a general teacher's guide and nine units containing a wide variety of energy lessons, resources, learning aids, and bibliography) were developed for the Indiana Energy Education Program from existing energy education materials. The units were designed to serve as an entire curriculum, resource document, supplementary materials, or as a laboratory manual of "hands-on" activities which could be infused into existing grades 9-12 curricula. Unit I, focusing on energy decision-making related to housing and home furnishings, consists of an introduction (rationale, unit objective, and general background information), five lessons, unit resources, bibliography and teacher evaluation form. Each lesson includes title, objectives, background information, activities, evaluation techniques, and resources. Titles of lessons are: (1) Water Heaters and Water Usage; (2) Home Lighting Plan - Which Conserves Energy? (3) Appliance Energy Use; (4) Caulking and Weatherstripping; and (5) Windows and Energy.
