Energy Management Lesson Plans for Vocational Agriculture Instructors.
Hedges, Lowell E., Ed.; Miller, Larry E., Ed.
This notebook provides vocational agricultural teachers with 10 detailed lesson plans on the major topic of energy management in agriculture. The lesson plans present information about energy and the need to manage it wisely, using a problem-solving approach. Each lesson plan follows this format: lesson topic, lesson performance objectives, materials needed, the situation, introduction to lesson, presentation of lesson (the problem and possible solutions to the problem), student application (suggested exercises), evaluation suggestions and instruments, and a listing of references. Appendixes provide handouts and transparency masters. The ten lesson plans are (1) An Overview of the Energy Situation for Ohio Agriculture, (2) Framework for Evaluating Costs and Benefits of Alternative Energy Systems, (3) Electrical Energy Management for the Home and Business, (4) Using Solar Energy as a Renewable Energy Resource at Home or on the Farm, (5) Using Wood as a Renewable Energy Source, (6) Energy Management with Maintenance and Operation of Tractors, (7) Reducing Energy Costs in Producing Corn, (8) Energy Management in Livestock Production, (9) Energy Management in the Greenhouse with Engineering and Cultural Practices, and (10) Inventory of Energy Use.
