McDermott, Hugh, Ed.; Scharmann, Larry, Ed.
Recommended for grades 9-12 social studies and/or physical science classes, this 4-8 day unit focuses on four topics: (1) the background and history of atomic development; (2) two common types of nuclear reactors (boiling water and pressurized water reactors); (3) disposal of radioactive waste; and (4) the future of nuclear energy. Each topic includes readings (with Fry readability levels for each reading indicated in the introduction) and a follow-up activity which can be used to assess student knowledge of all concepts presented in the unit. Rationale, objectives, and instructional strategies are provided for each activity. A teacher's guide for a slide program on the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station (available from the Nebraska Energy Office) is included. A list of process skills fostered, advanced teacher preparation, goals, and planning guide are also included in the introduction. (Author/JN)
