Q. Where can I find good online sources on alternative energy?
There are several good sources on alternative energy on the Alabama Virtual Library (AVL) including the various Gale and Ebsco periodical and newspaper databases. Another excellent source is "Alternative Energy, 2nd edition," from the publisher UXL. This work is based on a three volume set published just this year aimed toward upper elementary and middle school students writing basic reports on energy topics. This profusely illustrated source includes many easy-to-use charts and graphs and introduces students to issues surrounding current energy sources and alternative energy options.
