Stallsmith, Douglas D.
This guide presents alternatives, resources, and specifications for industrial education teachers to use in preparing a facilities proposal to present to administrators, boards of education, the community, and architects. Developed to reflect the objectives of industrial education as outlined in the "Wisconsin Guide to Local Curriculum Improvement in Industrial Education, K-12," it includes the following topics: (1) criteria for facility planning, emphasizing the students' needs; (2) the objectives of industrial education as identified in the Wisconsin curriculum guide; (3) types of industrial education laboratories; (4) planning sequence for proposing industrial education facilities, from determining design criteria through final evaluation and modification; (5) environment and service specifications, including utility systems; (6) equipment recommendations, according to grade levels; (7) financial sources, such as federal and state aid, bond issues, and leasing; (8) evaluation of existing facilities, containing a checklist for assessing location, space, layout, services, and equipment; (9) modernization of existing structures; (10) shared space concept; (11) alternatives, such as modular structures, mobile units, and remodeling; (12) layouts or floor plans; and (13) the occupational safety and health act as applied to industrial education facilities. Numerous diagrams and charts are interspersed throughout the text and appendixes to illustrate the suggested plans, and a bibliography of reference sources is provided at the end. (ELG)
