A RATIONALE AND STRUCTURE FOR INDUSTRIAL ARTS SUBJECT MATTER.
TOWERS, EDWARD R.; AND OTHERS
THE INITIAL TASK OF THE PROJECT WAS TO INVESTIGATE THE STRUCTURE OF MAN'S KNOWLEDGE IN ORDER TO EVENTUALLY DEVELOP A DETAILED STRUCTURE OF KNOWLEDGE WHICH IS OF CONCERN TO INDUSTRIAL ARTS CURRICULUM PLANNERS. FOUR DOMAINS OF KNOWLEDGE ARE PROPOSED -- (1) DESCRIPTIVE, AS THE SCIENCES WHICH ESTABLISH FACTS ABOUT PHENOMENA AND EVENTS AND DESCRIBE THEIR INTERRELATION, (2) PRESCRIPTIVE, AS FINE ARTS AND HUMANITIES WHICH SEEK TO PROVIDE A SYSTEM OF VALUES, (3) PRAXIOLOGICAL, OR KNOWLEDGE OF PRACTICE WHICH IS CONCERNED WITH HOW MAN ACTS TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT IS VALUED, AND (4) FORMAL, DISCIPLINES SUCH AS MATHEMATICS AND LOGIC WHICH SERVE AS TOOLS. INDUSTRIAL PRAXIOLOGY IS THE APPROPRIATE CONCERN OF INDUSTRIAL ARTS. IT WAS ASSUMED THAT (1) INDUSTRIAL ARTS IS A STUDY OF INDUSTRY, (2) MAN HAS BEEN AND REMAINS CURIOUS ABOUT INDUSTRY, AND (3) INDUSTRY IS SO VAST A SOCIETAL INSTITUTION THAT, FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES, EMPHASIS MUST BE PLACED ON A SYSTEM OF BASIC PRINCIPLES, CONCEPTS, AND UNIFYING THEMES. OTHER INDUSTRIAL ARTS CURRICULUM PROPOSALS AND SYSTEMS OF INDUSTRIAL CLASSIFICATION ARE EXAMINED IN AN EFFORT TO FIND A SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE FOR INDUSTRIAL ARTS. THE STRUCTURE OF THIS KNOWLEDGE, DESIRED BEHAVIORAL CHANGE OR OBJECTIVES OF INSTRUCTION, THE NATURE OF THE LEARNER, SCHOOL FACILITIES AND MATERIALS, INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES, AND PROGRAM EVALUATION ARE DISCUSSED. COMPANION DOCUMENTS ARE VT 003 145, VT 003 202, VT 003 204, AND VT 003 210. (EM)
