Educating Young People about Energy for Environmental Stewardship: A Guide to Resources for Curriculum Development with an Emphasis on Youth-led, Community-based Learning.
This curriculum guide is intended for educators who want to help young people become wise stewards of the environment and who believe that education about energy is an opportunity to achieve that goal. This guide aims to help educators in the curriculum planning process. This guide furnishes a visual overview of resources in chart format. Resources are grouped into categories of published resources and resource organizations. Entries are described in detail in listings under these headings. The resources chart is followed by two sections to aid in program planning. The first of these sections, "Choosing Resources for Energy/Environmental Stewardship Education", describes four interdependent sets of questions used to review the resources included in this guide. These questions pertain to environmental stewardship, energy/environment topics, education strategies, and user-friendliness. The Section following entitled "Energizing Your Youth Program," addresses key questions and concerns including designs for developing stewardship skills, age-appropriateness of concepts and teaching strategies, energy education opportunities for the 1990s, and where to turn for resources. Next are sections on published resources (materials for teaching, learning, and program planning; bibliographies and online information sources) and resource organizations. Final section guides the reader in how to access the 4-H Energy Education Resources Database. (PVD)
