The Energy Crisis: Past and Present
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

0.0 stars

This course will explore how Americans have confronted energy challenges since the end of World War II. Beginning in the 1970s, Americans worried about the supply of energy. As American production of oil declined, would the US be able to secure enough fuel to sustain their high consumption lifestyles? At the same time, Americans also began to fear the environmental side affects of energy use. Even if the US had enough fossil fuel, would its consumption be detrimental to health and safety? This class examines how Americans thought about these questions in the last half-century. We will consider the political, diplomatic, economic, cultural, and technological aspects of the energy crisis. Topics include nuclear power, suburbanization and the new car culture, the environmental movement and the challenges of clean energy, the Middle East and supply of oil, the energy crisis of the 1970s, and global warming.

Students begin by reading Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax" as an example of how overdevelopment can cause long-lasting environmental destruction. Students discuss how to balance the needs of the environment with the needs of human industry. Student teams are asked to serve as natural resource engineers, city planning engineers and civil engineers with the task to replant the nearly destroyed forest and develop a sustainable community design that can co-exist with the re-established natural area.

Interdisciplinary Tech-enriched Earth Day Unit of Study - Mid/Upper Elementary

Below is a link to an interdisciplinary, tech-enriched Earth Day themed unit of study.  The unit was designed for 3rd/4th-grade learners.  The unit was designed to develop an understanding of important environmental issues so that students are more aware of the actions they can take to protect the Earth and environment. It was also planned with the intention of connecting concepts and ideas across multiple disciplines. This allows students to understand that topics can be interrelated regardless of subject matter. Teaching thematically helps deepen understanding by bringing ideas together to create more meaningful learning.This unit also strives to include technologies that do not simply act as substitutes for traditional activities.  Instead, it attempts to integrate technologies that can modify and transform learning tasks into more meaningful, collaborative, and differentiated activities.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RFtsd2UT-M7m8KKZ6Q-8HwU8aZvtkxwdJLVHBTZvM9U/edit?usp=sharingAuthors:Nick Tirozzi, Karen Frawley, Harry Bartlett, and Kristie Guevremont

An Eco ed resource based on the rainforest explorers of the 19th C. They went to the forest to record and classify the plants, animals and people. The site has lessons for Eco events like Earth Day as well as 10,000 rare images and the explorers' journals. Within the 700 pages of text, all locations, plant and animal names are linked to their images. Exploring even one page of the text will raise Eco awareness. There is an extensive index for reports and projects. This is a family project that was approved by the British govt. for Curriculum OnLine, by the National Wildlife Federation and the Da Vinci Science Center.

Comments about Remember the Rainforest:
Rob Fox, education director Da Vinci Science Center : “ Fantastic !”

Ken Higgins, regional director and founder of Green Schools Alliance :
“I did open the link, and it is very impressive. I passed it along to our lower school and middle school science teachers, and have posted it with my sustainability educators group in New York.”

This kit covers a historical overview of American representations of natural resources from ancient Indian basketry to contemporary web sites. It compares conflicting media constructions about the Exxon Valdez oil spill, the damning of rivers, and Chukchi sea oil drilling. By showing the slow realization that natural resources are finite, students will learn valuable lessons in earth, natural and environmental sciences.
