This document (created by Lindsey DeLuca) includes handout information for students regarding a debate project on energy resources. Students create written information, as well as participate in a debate about energy resources. This project can be modified to fit into a variety of different classroom situations and classes: biology, general science, earth science, geology, environmental science, STEM, debate, physical science, etc.
Energy sources included include: tidal, wind, solar, coal, fossil fuels, oil, natural gas, geothermal, hydroelectric, nuclear and biomass.
A grading rubric is included with the document.
Students are assigned to a "role" for the debate, and each student generally enjoys playing their part! Also, students have the opportunity to work in pairs or individually, depending on their preference.
