Energy: How Bright Is Our Future?
Power shortages have reminded Americans how dependent we are on electricity and other forms of energy. This program looks at the energy situation in the United States, focusing on how power is produced and the problems associated with each means of production. Can energy shortages be averted? Must we accept environmental damage as a tradeoff for more energy sources? What can we do to develop more renewable sources of energy? These and other questions will give your students the impetus for some stimulating and important discussions.
Includes a 12-page teacher's guide with reproducibles and a classroom poster showing the percentage use of various energy sources in America.
