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 IV, focusing on energy and economics (residential and agricultural), consists of an introduction (rationale, unit objectives, and general background information), seven 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) Community Involvement in Government Rationing, Pollution - A Role Playing Lesson; (2) Wise Use of Decreasing Natural Resources; (3) Standard of Living; (4) The Need for Energy Conservation in the Home and on the Farm; (5) The Need for Energy Conservation, Student Information Sheets; (6) Resources and Their Wastes - Air, Water and Soil Pollution; and (7) Fuel Consumption Checklist and E.Q. (Energy Quotient) Lesson. (Author/JN)
