The California Energy Crisis: Lesson Plan. Student Handout & Teacher's Guide.
Foundation for Teaching Economics, Davis, CA.
As Californians put on another sweater, light candles, and open their electricity bills with shaking hands, the rest of the nation wonders who or what caused the problem and whether they will be next. Mixing with accusations about deregulation, there are also insistent voices blaming misguided and heavy-handed government for dimming the lights in California. This lesson plan contains readings and discussion questions which are designed to help students find their way through all the pointing fingers. The lesson plan provides excerpts from three articles about the California energy crisis, and students are asked to read carefully and then work through the questions on their own or with a classmate. Included is a teacher guide that provides questions and answers and 5 Internet resources. (BT)
