This motivating, interdisciplinary workshop will give teachers the tools to investigate and analyze energy and environment issues.  A conceptual framework for generating and comparing multiple alternatives to problems based on how well they meet the criteria will be used.  In addition to motivating lessons, the workshop will include classroom ready alternative assessments in which students use a decision making model to analyze an energy or environmental problem.  Each alternative assessment requires students to apply skills across several disciplines and also encourages students to make extensive use of resources in their communities.  The workshop includes free curriculum, snacks, and door prizes.
