Growing Up in a Nuclear World: A Resource Guide for Elementary School Teachers. Teaching Nuclear Issues.
Meier, Paulette; McPherson, Beth
Provided in this guide are annotated lists of teacher and student resources for teaching and learning about nuclear issues in the elementary/junior high school (grades K-8). Resources are grouped into five major sections. The first section (background reading for teachers) contains books and articles focusing on nuclear issues (nuclear war; arms race/disarmament; nuclear weapons and policy making; nuclear weapons/power link; nuclear power; health and environmental impacts; and safe energy alternatives) and approaches to teaching about nuclear issues (addressing developmental/psychological considerations about peace education; values education; and recognizing propaganda). The second section lists classroom materials on nuclear issues: (1) curriculum guides, teaching units, plays, and teacher resources on peace education and (2) student/teacher materials on safe energy versus nuclear power, including teaching units, curriculum guides, simulation exercises, texts, plays, coloring books, and catalogs. Fiction and non-fiction books for children to read on their own are presented in the third section, grouped by K-3, 4-6, and 7-8 grade levels. A list of peace groups and safe energy organizations is provided in the fourth section. The last section lists over 100 slide shows, films, and audio tapes which provide a broad choice of resources on nuclear weapons/war, nuclear energy/weapons, and alternative energy. (JN)
