There aren't many active aspects in this lesson plan. The assessment and worksheets help students retain the information better, but this is as close as it gets to active. Most of the lesson is lecture and analyzing. There is a higher constructive aspect, which is great because students will have to form their own ideas on energy savings. This leads to good authenticity in from the lesson. However, there is no technology used. The lesson plan has low levels of technology integration. Technology would only be used if, for example, the students used a power point presentation for their plans/ideas.
