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 IX, focusing on energy conservation and the law, consists of an introduction (rationale, unit objectives, and general background information), two lessons, bibliography, and teacher evaluation form. Both lessons include titles, objectives, background information, activities, evaluation techniques, and resources. In the first lesson (How a Bill Becomes Law) students identify major factors influencing passage and/or modifications of legislation, demonstrate an understanding of the lawmaking process, and evaluate a law as an example of a good law. In the second lesson (Does the 55 MPH Speed Limit Save Lives?) students develop competency in gathering data and testing a hypothesis. (Author/JN)
