Hi everyone… my name is Shauni Nix and I’m one of several Education Coordinators with OEP. We are excited to begin an energy education blog and I’m the first blogger! I have the pleasure of doing professional development with teachers across the state. In reviewing some comments from teachers, I keep getting the question – what are some good language arts connections to energy? This is an excellent question as energy topics are prevalent in many non-fiction and fiction books. The ones that I’ve heard of recently are the Hunger Games series and City of Ember as great fiction choices. I decided to google “best energy related books.” Quite a list was generated. I would like to encourage you to do the same and start your own list. Let us know your favorites on OEP’s FB page.
Have a topic you would you would like OEP to address through our blog? Or would you like to be a guest blogger one month? Contact OEP and let us know!
