DEVELOPMENT OF A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR THE TEACHING OF INDUSTRIAL ARTS.
FACE, WESLEY L.; FLUG, EUGENE R.F.
CREATING IN SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS AN AWARENESS FOR THE IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY UPON THEIR DAILY LIVES WAS THE AIM OF THIS STUDY. A NEW ORIENTATION FOR INDUSTRIAL ARTS TEACHERS ATTEMPTED TO DEFINE A CURRICULUM AREA FOR COMPREHENSION OF THE BROAD SCOPE OF AMERICAN INDUSTRY, RATHER THAN THE USUAL FOCUS UPON ISOLATED TRADES, OCCUPATIONS, OR MATERIALS. A STRUCTURE OF INDUSTRY WAS DEVELOPED AND REFINED TO CONTAIN 14 MAJOR CONCEPT AREAS INTENDED TO REPLACE INDUSTRIAL ARTS IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS. A FORMAT WAS DESIGNED FOR THE PREPARATION OF RESOURCE UNITS. DEVELOPMENT OF MATERIALS FOR THIS CONTINUING PROGRAM WAS BEGUN BY 10 TEACHERS WHO TOOK PART IN AN 8-WEEK SUMMER WORKSHOP CONDUCTED UNDER THIS STUDY. A FIELD TRIAL WAS INITIATED IN THE FALL 1964 WHEN THESE TEACHERS INTRODUCED COURSES IN AMERICAN INDUSTRY VARYING IN LENGTH FROM 6 TO 36 WEEKS AT GRADE LEVELS FROM 7 THROUGH 12. FUTURE DEMONSTRATION OF PROGRAM EFFECTIVENESS, DEVELOPMENT OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, AND EXPERIMENTS ON TEACHER PREPARATION WERE PLANNED. (JM)
