Middle School Industrial Arts. A Guide for Teachers.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
The purpose of this handbook is to help educators in Oregon to provide a quality program in industrial arts for middle school students. The suggestions in this guide may help middle school industrial arts teachers plan activities to develop their students' awareness of technology in our culture and the variety of related careers available to them. The guide is organized in four sections. In the first section, an overview of the program is given, along with background information on industrial arts and the specific needs of middle school students. The second section of the guide describes the middle school curriculum, including goals and content. In the third section, sample outlines for courses are presented for teacher use in developing courses. An interdisciplinary approach is taken in this section. For each course, characteristics of students, student needs, program suggestions, and "thought starters" are given. The final section lists resources such as curriculum guides, information on special needs students, individual course topics, publishers' addresses, journals, and a bibliography that may be of use to educators planning middle school industrial arts programs.
