Guidelines and suggestions for introducing energy education into classrooms are provided in this booklet. The first section discusses available resources and ways to use them. These include: (1) community resources (museums, libraries, county extension services/planning offices); (2) organizations and institutions such as environmental groups, utilities/fuel companies, architectural firms, and others; (3) government resources; (4) human resources; and (5) material resources (bookstores, magazines, and federally funded materials). The second section focuses on strategies for using the resources, including organizing a course, establishing a resource center, and building and using alternative energy models. These models include a solar hot water heater, parabolic solar furnace, fresnal lens, solar electrical device, savonius rotor and wind charger, and a hytroturbine. Four sample energy education course outlines are also included. (JN)
