CERAMIC TECHNOLOGY--FROM POTTER'S WHEEL TO NUCLEATION, A PHILOSOPHY OF CURRICULUM ANALYSIS TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE SPACE AGE.
FRITZ, ROBERT C.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS STUDY WERE TO OBTAIN AND ESTABLISH CURRICULAR COMPONENTS FROM TECHNOLOGICAL RESEARCH AND TO PROJECT THE RESEARCH INTO AN OUTLINE OF ORGANIZED SUBJECT MATTER. THE STUDY IS LIMITED TO AN INVESTIGATION OF SELECTED SCIENTIFIC AND PRACTICAL ELEMENTS OF CERAMIC TECHNOLOGY THAT ARE RECORDED AS RESOURCE REFERENCES. THE DATA WERE SELECTED FROM BIBLIOGRAPHICAL REFERENCES. THE SCOPE AND DIVERSITY OF THE CERAMICS FIELD ARE SHOWN BY ITS CLASSIFICATION OF PRODUCTS--(1) STRUCTURAL CERAMICS, (2) REFRACTORIES, (3) WHITEWARES, (4) VITREOUS ENAMELS, (5) GLASS, (6) ABRASIVES AND CERAMICS TOOLS, (7) CEMENTS, LIME, AND GYPSUM, AND (8) MISCELLANEOUS. THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE DERIVED CURRICULAR OUTLINE IS DIVIDED INTO THE FOLLOWING SEQUENTIAL ELEMENTS--(1) SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, (2) ANALYSIS OF CERAMIC MATERIALS AND CLASSIFICATIONS, (3) COMPOSITION AND PREPARATION OF CERAMICS MATERIALS, (4) CERAMIC PROCESSES, AND (5) TESTS OF CERAMIC MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS WHICH INCLUDES DETERMINING TEST PROCEDURES, APPLYING EQUIPMENT AND INSTRUMENTS, DETERMINING TEST CONTROLS, DEVELOPING ADAPTABLE METHODS AND DEVICES, AND DEVICES, AND DESIGNING AND CONSTRUCTING SPECIALIZED EQUIPMENT. A SAMPLE CURRICULAR UNIT, "THE PROBLEM--SLIP CASTING," IS INCLUDED. THIS IS A REPORT OF A DOCTORAL RESEARCH STUDY, "CERAMIC TECHNOLOGY--A TECHNOLOGICAL RESEARCH AND CURRICULUM ANALYSIS, WITH IMPLICATIONS FOR INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION," SUBMITTED TO OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY AND AVAILABLE AS 61-908 FOR $4.10 ON MICROFILM AND FOR $14.40 AS XEROXED COPY FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, INC., 300 NORTH ZEEB ROAD, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48106.
