Technology Education: A Modern Focus for Industrial Arts.
NASSP Curriculum Report, v14 n4 Apr 1985
Efforts are currently underway to adjust the focus of industrial arts instruction to concentrate more on the study and understanding of technology and its role in our lives. For many years industrial arts programs have been industry-based; however, many professionals support a curriculum that will relate industrial arts instruction more closely to the contemporary world by shifting the focus to technology itself. To help educators understand the structure and implementation of a technology education, specifics are provided for each school level that include goals, program descriptions, outcomes, and courses. Charts show the recommended scope and sequence. Brief descriptions of what five other schools are already doing and a list of seven annotated sources of information are appended. (MLF)
