Bartley, Elise; Brown, Patrick L.; Concannon, James P.; Stumpe, Laura
Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, v50 n2 p41-48 2013
In this lesson, the teacher begins by reviewing some key energy topics with the students. Next, students are asked to focus closely on nuclear energy as a viable resource by closely reading, highlighting, and annotating an article regarding the future of nuclear energy. The culminating activity and evaluation of students understanding of energy and energy resources is accomplished by collecting and grading students' journals. In addition, students create a poster and write a letter to their senator to either encourage the proliferation of nuclear energy in their state or discourage its use. (Contains 3 figures.)
