Alternative Energy: A Guide to Free Information for Educators.
White, Janet A.
This guide was compiled to help teachers and students locate free educational materials (both lessons and nontechnical background references) on renewable energy resources and energy conservation. The 214 entries are arranged by these topic areas: (1) energy efficiency and renewables; (2) biomass; (3) hydropower; (4) solar thermal energy; (5) photovoltaics; (6) geothermal energy; and (7) wind energy. Entries are grouped within these topic areas, when applicable, by such categories as background information, periodicals, or lessons. Each entry includes a description, source, and a code to a grade level/subject area matrix. The seven subject areas are cross-referenced by grade levels (K-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12, and adult) in the matrix. Although all grade levels are featured, the majority of materials available are targeted for high school students and adults. A separate listing of all sources cited is also provided. It is recommended that these sources be contacted for additional materials available, since several of them offered too many publications to be included in this guide. (JN)
