Teacher's Guide to the Energy 83 Student Booklet.
The Energy 80 program is designed to enhance students understanding of energy, either through supplements to traditional courses, such as mathematics, science, social studies, or homemaking, or by developing a mini-course or interdisciplinary course in energy. Although written for junior high school students, many of the activities may be used in high school and upper elementary grades. This guide makes use of two parts of the program, the student booklet, "Energy 83," and the three-volume resource book, "Teaching about Energy." The guide is organized according to the sequence of topics presented in the student booklet. These topics include: energy fundamentals; energy flows in nature; energy from nuclear fission; renewable energy sources; energy in the United States; economics and decision-making; and conservation. Provided for each activity associated with these topics is a picture of and reference to the appropriate pages in this student's edition of "Energy 83," materials needed from the resource book, objectives, instructional strategies, major ideas to be developed, and suggested reinforcing and extension activities. Each activity also includes a mini-quiz and set of true-false questions (with answers), background information to help teachers better understand the subject before teaching it, and a list of teacher references and resources.
