Industry & Technology Education. A Guide for Curriculum Designers, Implementors, and Teachers. Bulletin No. 4432.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This operational level implementation guide is intended for the local or state curriculum designer of industrial arts/technology education curricula. A rationale and mission statement for industry and technology education appear first. The assumptions upon which program structures were developed are listed, and the three model program structures that were developed to accommodate industrial arts programs of three sizes--small, medium, and large--are described. The five common elements of each program structure are discussed, and charts of the three programs are presented. Structures are provided for these 18-week-long courses: an introductory foundation course, communication, construction, manufacturing, transportation, and two synthesis courses (research and development and enterprise). This information is given for each course: course description, course objectives, and an outline detailing content and representative activities. In addition, a chart indicating content for the three programs and an introduction to the subject are provided for the four courses dealing with the content areas (communication, construction, manufacturing, transportation). Guidelines are recommended for initiating and implementing an industrial arts program reflecting the intent of this guide. Appendixes include the Jackson's Mill Industrial Arts curriculum theory and taxonomies for each content area. (YLB)
