CURRICULAR CONSIDERATIONS, OSWEGO.
DEVORE, PAUL W.
CURRICULUM STUDIES AT OSWEGO HAVE BEEN BASED ON A STUDY OF MAN AND HIS TECHNOLOGIES IN ORDER TO ANSWER BASIC QUESTIONS --(1) WHAT IS AND WHAT IS NOT MEANT BY THE NAME INDUSTRIAL ARTS, (2) WHAT SHOULD AND WHAT SHOULD NOT BE A PART OF THIS AREA OF STUDY, (3) WHAT RELATIONSHIPS EXIST BETWEEN INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND SIMILAR ACTIVITIES, AND (4) WHAT CRITERIA DO WE USE TO MEASURE THE VALIDITY OF WHAT WE ARE DOING. SEVERAL CURRICULUM EFFORTS ARE BASED ON THE PREMISE THAT INDUSTRIAL ARTS IS A STUDY OF MAN'S CREATIVE ENDEAVORS IN THE TECHNOLOGIES AND THAT THESE ENDEAVORS HAVE IDENTIFIABLE ORGANIZATION AND STRUCTURE. AN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM OF INDUSTRIAL ARTS BASED UPON THE DISCIPLINES DERIVED FROM THE BODY OF KNOWLEDGE CREATED BY MAN IN THE TECHNOLOGIES PROVIDES A STRUCTURE WHICH IS EXTERNALLY STABLE AND INTERNALLY FLEXIBLE AND ADAPTABLE TO CHANGE. THE STRUCTURE ACCOMODATES PRESENT PROBLEMS AND PERMITS ESTABLISHMENT OF FRUITFUL PATTERNS OF INVESTIGATION FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS. EVALUATION PERTAINING TO CLASSIFICATION SYSTEMS IN THE TECHNOLOGIES IS IN PROGRESS. WHAT WAS ONCE SEPARATED INTO DIFFERENT CATEGORIES IS NOW BEING INCORPORATED INTO A TOTAL SYSTEM SUCH AS A COMMUNICATION SYSTEM, A TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM, OR A PRODUCTION SYSTEM. FROM A STRUCTURE BASED ON CULTURAL UNIVERSALS IN THE TECHNOLOGIES, THE CURRICULUM PROBLEM CAN BE DELIMITED AND A SPECIFIC CONTENT RESERVOIR IDENTIFIED FROM WHICH OBJECTIVES, BASIC CONCEPTS, UNITS OF INSTRUCTION, PROGRAMS OF STUDY, AND METHODS OF IMPLEMENTATION CAN BE DETERMINED.
