The Sun's Joules: What is Renewable Energy? An Introduction to "The Sun's Joules" CD-ROM and Energy Education Program.
Weiskopf, Joyce Lowry
This guide accompanies a compact disk that provides a comprehensive collection of information resources. The compact disk is organized according to energy sources and cross-referenced to issues that must be considered when making decisions about energy. This booklet, designed around questions common to high school students, illustrates how the compact disk can enable students to find answers to their questions and form opinions based on facts. The activities directly support the content and pedagogy in science curricula that address the need for more students to study science and for all students to develop scientific literacy. The six activities focus on the use of renewable resources and the effects on society. Activities are the following: "What Is Renewable Energy?"; "Why Do We Need Options?"; "What Is Energy Efficiency?"; "What Is the Environmental Cost of Energy?"; "How Can Passive Solar Be Used in Home Construction?"; "How Can Motor Vehicles Use Renewable Energy?"
