Elementary School Industrial Arts. An Educator's Handbook Containing Approaches and Resources for Making the Elementary Education Curriculum More Effective through Industrial Arts Activities.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg.
This guide attempts to show educators and parents how elementary school industrial arts (ESIA) activities in the classroom can increase a child's competencies in basic skills, computer applications, and other class assignments, while also expanding the child's knowledge of careers and the rapidly changing world of work. The guide provides administrators, elementary school principals, classroom teachers, and industrial arts consultants with several strategies for integrating industrial arts activities into the curriculum. The guide contains 13 sections that cover the following topics: a rationale for elementary school industrial arts, research on the effectiveness of ESIA, how ESIA can enhance career education, learning environments for doing ESIA, ESIA activities by grade levels, preparing instructors for teaching ESIA, funding, tools and materials, safety considerations, local resources, public relations, sample lesson plans, and evaluating ESIA. Various learning activities and teaching strategies are included in each section, as appropriate. (KC)
