The Hitchcock Center for the Environment
Invites You to Participate in the Energy Literacy Project
The Hitchcock Center is committed to supporting teachers who want to
incorporate energy-related curricula into their teaching. With a
grant from WMECO (Western Massachusetts Electric Company), fifteen
4th, 5th or 6th grade teachers will be able to participate in the
Hitchcock Center's Energy Literacy Project.**
The Energy Literacy Project provides a combination of professional
development and classroom mentoring to strengthen understanding of
our energy resources and how to make energy choices that support a
vital economy and a healthy environment.
Teachers will be given hands-on lessons for teaching important energy
concepts such as kinds and forms of energy, how electricity is
generated, renewable and non-renewable energy, impacts of energy use
and alternative choices.
The project consists of the following elements:
" A three-hour workshop held on Saturday, October 6, from
9:30am-12:30pm at the Hitchcock Center, 525 S. Pleasant Street,
Amherst, MA 01002
" Two 1-hour classroom lessons taught by a Hitchcock educator
to model and demonstrate content taught in the workshop.
" An energy education classroom kit (value: $100)
" PDP's for 5 hours of science education
**This project is limited to schools within the WMECO service area
