Standards for Excellence in Trade and Industrial Education.
Vocational Industrial Clubs of America, Leesburg, VA.
This publication presents standards for high quality trade and industrial education. Introductory materials include background on the standards project and information on using the standards. The three primary objectives of the project were to develop: standards for trade and industrial education that are common to all instructional programs at the secondary and postsecondary level, standards for trade and industrial education teacher education programs, and standards for certification of shop, laboratory, classroom and related teachers of trade and industrial education (identified as Levels I, II, and III). Each of the three objectives in the complete set of standards is composed of a set of topics. Each topic has a standard statement to describe the standards and subsequent criteria to be used in assessment. Following each criterion are three columns, one of which is checked during a review to indicate whether the criterion can be deemed as exceeding the standard, meeting the standard, or being below the standard. On the last page of each standard topic is a section entitled "summary of this topic." A "program profile" form is provided after the last page of the standards. (YLB)
