The Wisconsin Guide to Local Curriculum Improvement in Industrial Education, K-12. (Revised). Bulletin 7070.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This curriculum guide was developed to assist teachers (K-12) in developing comprehensive industrial education programs, establish individual courses, or plan instruction integrated with other academic areas. This booklet's content is presented in eight sections. The first, an introduction for teachers, explains the purpose of the guide. The next three sections briefly provide a rationale for industrial education and define industry and industrial education. The next and longest section identifies five behavioral objectives of industrial education and for each objective presents a matrix to serve as a basis for selecting and organizing content. The elements of industry (system, resource, and coordinating elements) appear on the vertical axis of the matrix while content organizers (elements that provide specific focus for each objective) appear on the horizontal axis. The sixth section discusses three levels in the process of local curriculum planning, development, and review. The next section lists examples of sub-objectives and activities, while the last one presents questions that can be used by teachers to provide students with the opportunity to interact with each other and examine issues. A list of supplementary references and a bibliography are attached. (EM)
