Energy. Our Common Home: Earth. A Curriculum Strategy to Affect Student Skills Development and Exposure to Diverse Global Natural/Social Environments.
One of a series of global education instructional units, this energy awareness curriculum was designed to be infused with existing social studies courses aimed at students in grades 5-12. Concept-based and skills-oriented, the curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of synthetic energy sources; human dependence on nature for energy; attempts by nations to conserve and manage limited energy; and the difference between finite, infinite, and renewable energy resources. Following an introduction, the importance of combining geography education, ecological studies, and a sociological perspective in enhancing a student's global awareness is emphasized. A series of charts showing the concept to be taught, the topic, essential student outcomes, performance indicators, and content are included. They are accompanied by charts listing specific activities, print and nonprint materials, enrichment activities, and suggestions for evaluation. A rationale statement concludes the curriculum. (LH)
