Energy... Part 2 - Telling Energy and Sociopolitical Stories
A mini unit meant to come after a typical conservation of energy unit in an intro physics class, this set of activities challenges students to see the sociopolitical nature of physics, introduces the new representation of energy tracking diagrams, and guides students toward telling their own personal and sociopolitical energy stories for how they get to school or how they cook a favorite meal. It also includes an investigation into a nearby power plant on both the energy-tracking and sociopolitical levels through the use of system schemas.
