Using Energy Wisely

January 17, 2009

We’ve just finished a book called Using Energy Wisely in our elementary reading class.  The students should now be able to identify various problems with the different types of electricity production (burning fuels, nuclear, wind, solar, and hydroelectric power were in the book) as well as tell some ways to save electricity.  We are through the organization step of our writing project, persuasive letters encouraging the wise use of energy and hope that the Homer News will publish some of them as letters to the editor.  This is my first time to submit student writing to an outside publication, the kids seem interested in the possibility of being published so perhaps we shall see some names in print.
