THREE-DIMENSIONAL TEACHING AIDS FOR TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL INSTRUCTION.
ROSENGREN, HAROLD J.
THREE-DIMENSIONAL MODELS ARE USED WITH GREAT EFFECTIVENESS AS TEACHING AIDS. CONCEPTS CAN BE MUCH MORE READILY UNDERSTOOD WHEN SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS AND IDEAS ARE SIMPLIFIED, EXAGGERATED, AND PRESENTED AS WORKING MODELS. THESE MODELS CAN BE CONSTRUCTED BY TEACHERS AND/OR STUDENTS. THE FOLLOWING CONSIDERATIONS SHOULD BE KEPT IN MIND--THE AID MUST FOCUS ATTENTION ON THE PRINCIPLE, CONCEPT, OR IDEA TO BE TAUGHT, CONSTRUCTION SHOULD BE DURABLE, WORKMANSHIP OF HIGH QUALITY, AND OPERATION MUST BE SMOOTH AND SIMPLE. THE TEACHER MUST JUDGE WHICH TYPE OF MODEL IS BEST SUITED FOR HIS PURPOSE, MODELS MAY BE CLASSIFIED UNDER THE FOLLOWING HEADINGS--(1) THE CUTOUT, CUTAWAY, OR CROSS-SECTION MODEL, (2) THE WORKING MODEL, (3) THE ENLARGED MODEL, (4) THE REDUCED MODEL, (5) THE SCALE MODEL, (6) THE TRANSPARENT MODEL, AND (7) THE MOCK-UP. A VARIETY OF COLORS AND MATERIALS MAY BE USED. THE CONSTRUCTION OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL AIDS CAN BE FACILITATED THROUGH A STUDY OF THE SIDE VARIETY OF DEVICES PHOTOGRAPHED IN THIS PUBLICATION. A VARIETY OF INSTRUCTIONAL AREAS IS PRESENTED, ALTHOUGH MOST ARE IN THE VOCATIONAL AREA. AN INSTRUCTOR'S CHECK-LIST ON THE PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES RELATED TO THE USE OF THESE AIDS IS PRESENTED. THE LIST INCLUDED THE FOLLOWING HEADINGS--PLANNING AND PREPARING, MAKING THE PRESENTATION, STUDENT PERFORMANCE, TERMINATING THE PRESENTATION, AND STORING THE AID.
