A Teacher's Guide to the Energy 80 Student Booklet for the 1981-82 School Year.
Lord, John, Ed.
This teaching guide was developed for use with Energy 80 program student booklets. Although the program was designed for junior high/middle school students in science/social studies classes, it is indicated that the materials are suitable for use at higher grades and, to a lesser extent, in upper elementary grades. The first 80 pages of the guide suggest ways of using the student booklet. Each of the 16 spreads in the student booklet deals with a separate topic, and the guide treats each spread separately. Included for each topic (spread) are objectives, reading level, background information, list of key vocabulary words, suggested activities and discussion topics, resources, and mini-quiz. The last three-quarters of the guide contains a selection of lesson plans, worksheets, and readings from the program, providing the basis for an interdisciplinary course in energy at the junior high school level. These materials are organized into eight units: energy fundamentals; energy from the sun; history and technology of fossil fuels; energy from nuclear fission; renewable energy resources; energy in the United States; economics and decision-making; and energy conservation. Rough outlines of two science and two social studies mini-units (using materials in the guide) are provided near the beginning of the guide. (Author/JN)
