This article describes a five-day online energy module, developed by the Concord Consortium (an educational research and development organization) in which students compare the effects of various energy sources on air quality, water quality, and land use. The module's interactive models explore hydraulic fracturing, real-world data on energy production and consumption, and scaffolded argumentation tasks to help students examine evidence and discuss the issues associated with claims based on models and data. The free module, which aligns with the "Next Generation Science Standards," runs on computers or tablets.
