This instructional resource guide is intended to assist the industrial arts (IA) teacher in implementing a comprehensive materials and Processes Technology program at the technical level in Virginia high schools. The course is designed to help students make informed educational and occupational choices and prepare them for advanced technical or vocational programs in a related cluster of occupations. Section 1 discusses Virginia IA curriculum, including mission, goals, instructional objectives, and student organization. Section 2 provides a course description, course goals, suggested outline for content/concepts and topics, and key to guide usage. Thirteen units of study comprise section 3: (1) Materials and Processes Technology, (2) Safety Procedures, (3) Industrial Technology Careers, (4) In-class IA Student Association, (5) Nature of Materials, (6) Classifications of Materials, (7) Properties of Materials, (8) Materials Processing, (9) Plastics, (10) Metals, (11) Woods, (12) Ceramics, and (13) Composites. Each unit supplies this information: tasks, topics, teacher's guide, note, student's performance guide, resources/media, equipment, and supplies. Section 4 lists the resources and supporting media used in the course. Section 5 contains over twenty experiments, activities, and projects. Sources of free or inexpensive information and materials are listed in section 6.
