Electricity: Today's Technologies, Tomorrow's Alternatives. Teacher's Guide.
Electric Power Research Inst., Palo Alto, CA.
This teaching guide is designed to help teachers develop lesson plans around nine chapters provided in the student textbook. Chapters focus on energy use, energy demand, energy supply, principles of electric power generation, today's generating options, future generating options, electricity storage and delivery, environmental concerns, and making energy decisions. The guide is not intended as a comprehensive step-by-step instructional aid; rather, its purpose is to suggest some general classroom procedures and activities. The guide presents a nine-part format related to each chapter, including a one- or two-sentence summary of the chapter contents, list of major topics, statement of the chapter's objective, list of key words, general questions for discussion that challenge students to think beyond the contents, suggestions for activities (including field trips and guest lectures), list of additional readings, list of films and audiovisual resources, and a short quiz. An answer key for the nine quizzes is also provided. (JN)
