The World of Construction, Teacher's Guide. Industrial Arts Curriculum Project.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Research Foundation.
This teacher's guide encompassing the concepts found in the world of construction is designed for junior high school students, to be used as a total educational package with the textbook (VT 014 241) and the laboratory manuals (VT 014 242 and VT 014 243). As the first part of a 2-year integrated program in which the second year concerns manufacturing, it is designed to prepare students for enlightened citizenship and to provide educational-occupational guidance for the world of work. This program was designed to be used 45 minutes per day for 185 days, with 22 optional assignments for flexibility. Assignments cover three major areas: (1) analysis of the managed-personnel-production system of construction, (2) synthesis of housing construction practices, and (3) synthesis of city and regional planning practices. Each of the 185 assignment units contains objectives, time schedule, suggested demonstration and an overview. A list of teacher's aids, equipment and materials, a list of tools and equipment for students, a list of expendable materials and a scaled floor plan are appended. Three-ring binder format makes removal of pages easy. Other related documents are available as VT 014 088 and VT 014 238-VT 014 240. (GEB)
