The Many Faces of Energy. Teacher's Guide. ESL/Energy Module 1.
Howard, Joan; And Others
This document, the first of two instructional modules on the topic of energy, is designed for secondary school students of English as a second language (ESL). The theme relates directly to the science and geography programs at the intermediate and senior levels, and the materials are designed as an overview and introduction to a complex subject at a linguistic level accessible to the ESL student. The objectives are for students to (1) know that energy can take many forms, (2) identify basic energy forms in everyday use, (3) know that energy can be converted into other forms; and (4) realize the need for energy conservation. English communication and organization skills are encouraged through reading and listening, expressing use and need, using the conditional forms of verbs to express hypothetical situations, describing spatial organization in pictures, and classifying information. The teacher's guide consists of an introduction to the materials, procedures for the accompanying tape-filmstrip presentation, follow-up activities, a list of useful concepts and terms, references and resources, and an answer key to student worksheets.
