Blackout!: An Event-Based Science Module. Student Edition. Electricity and Solar Activity Module.
Wright, Russell G.
This book is designed for middle school students to learn scientific literacy through event-based science. Unlike traditional curricula, the event-based earth science module is a student-centered, interdisciplinary, inquiry-oriented program that emphasizes cooperative learning, teamwork, independent research, hands-on investigations, and exploration of authentic tasks. Students use this book to work in cooperative groups to build models of power companies and simulate causes of electrical blackouts. (KHR)
