Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis. Div. of Curriculum.; Indiana State Dept. of Commerce, Indianapolis. Energy Group.
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 II, focusing on energy consumption and conservation in the home, consists of an introduction (rationale, unit objective, and general background information), nine lessons, unit resources, bibliography, and teacher evaluation form. Each lesson includes lesson title, objectives, background information, activities, evaluation techniques, and resources. Titles of lessons are: (1) Energy Conservation in the Home; (2) Supplemental Information, Using Wood; (3) Supplemental Information, R-Values and Uses; (4) Home Heating & Cooling - Save Energy, Save Dollars; (5) Energy Questions and Checklists; (6) Weatherize Your Home; (7) An Easy-on-Energy Home; (8) Making an Insulation Experiment Model; and (9) Energy Conservation Worksheets.
