Section 2 describes the programs at the elementary school, junior high and middle school, and senior high school levels (activities, purpose, organization, course content, curriculum). Special programs and program evaluation are addressed. A recommended organizational plan is included. Section 3 provides names and addresses of professional and student industrial arts organizations. Section 4 on laboratory facilities offers a philosophic statement and recommendations for general planning. Teacher preparation, requirements for a professional certificate in industrial arts, and inservice education activities are discussed in section 5. Section 6 on management lists responsibilities of the state supervisor, local supervisor, school principal, and teacher. Section 7 focuses on safety--teacher responsibility, state safety law, and teacher liability. A reference section is organized by industrial arts areas. An equipment list is appended. (YLB)
