An Identification of Fluid Power Instructional Goals and Content for Industrial Education Teacher Preparation.
Wolansky, William D.
This study, designed to determine the appropriate goals and to identify, codify, and outline the core content for the industrial education teacher preparation in fluid power instruction, has the following four objectives: (1) to determine the specific and appropriate goals for the preparation of industrial education teachers to teach fluid power at the secondary and post-secondary school level, (2) to identify and formulate a framework of the major divisions of the content of fluid power, (3) to identify the technical core content through survey and analysis of the literature and to develop an instrument to facilitate the further development and evaluation of proposed units, and (4) to develop an organizational pattern for the selection and codification of titles for units of a model program. A jury, fluid power specialists, and a consulting committee were used for evaluation of various phases of the study. Seven conclusions based on a synthesis of the findings are included along with several observations and recommendations. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to Wayne State University. (GR)
