Introducing The Captain Power and The Power Quiz. Energy Education Programs.
Niedermeyer, F.; Roberson, E.
Two energy education programs are described in this informational brochure. Both "Captain Power" for second graders and "Power Quiz" for fifth graders are designed to teach energy concepts and to help students develop and use conservation skills. Program outcomes focus on energy concepts, types of energy, energy costs, energy needs, and conservation. Program materials for each include teacher's guide, filmstrip(s) and tape(s), picture cards, record sheet, and multiple copies of pupil and parent materials (exercises, pre- and post-tests, leaflets, badges). In addition, the second grade program has two posters and two sets of three hand puppets. Illustrations depict samples of materials including procedures in the teacher's guide, pre-test, parent materials and take-home exercises, filmstrips, lessons and exercises, post-test, and program record sheet. A separate document contains results of tryouts and field tests including scores on pre- and post-tests, teacher reactions, information from record sheets, pupil reactions, parent reactions, and home energy audits. The May 1979 issue of the "Elementary School Journal" contained an article entitled "Captain Power and Power Quiz: Two New Energy Education Programs," referencing this field test data document. (DC)
