Teaching Tips

Consider using the Switch Energy Project website to have students do a research project on the pros and cons of different types of energy sources. Then as a class they can create an energy portfolio.
This video could also be complemented by other CLEAN resources found here [link http://serc.carleton.edu/sp/library/google_earth/examples/energy.html], with which students investigate the amount of oil the U.S. consumes.
