For our culminating activity in this unit we will be getting you into groups and asking you to research, present and debate on which is the best source of energy for the Philippines.  Look at this handout for full details of the work, including the rubric for assessment.  Amended Energy Topic Performance Task

Each group of 4 students will be given one source of energy.  Each person on the group will take on a different role – either that of engineer, economist, environmentalist, or a  member of the public – and put together a convincing argument as to why their particular source of energy should be used.  You will also need to have some knowledge of other sources of energy in order to be able to counter any arguments against your source.

You will be given 2 full lessons to research this.  The next lesson we will listen to each presentation, make some notes on this sheet: ENERGY PERFORMANCE TASK Presentation Notes and then vote on which energy source we think should be used.

This should be fun!
