I was honored to be a part of the San Francisco Stakeholder Team that helped develop these Energy Literacy Standards.

The Department of Energy (DOE) is sponsoring a Webcast today, February 6 called "An Energy Literate Citizenry from K-to-Gray: A Webcast on the Department of Energy’s Energy Literacy Initiative".

This webinar will detail the Energy Literacy Framework, which identifies concepts every citizen should know to be energy literate. With this document, Department of Energy (DOE) aims to empower energy educators to apply an interdisciplinary, systems-based approach to teaching the physical, natural and social sciences necessary for a comprehensive understanding of energy. The Energy Literacy Framework was developed through a series of workshops and an extensive review and comment process involving the 13 federal partner agencies which make up the U.S. Global Change Research Program and many other education partners. With the Energy Literacy Framework complete and in print, work continues involving education partners to advance energy education with audiences from K-Gray. Learn more about the Energy Literacy Framework (http://www1.eere.energy.gov/education/energy_literacy.html) and energy education resources now available.
