Project TECH (Technology Education Curriculum Help).
California University of Pennsylvania developed Project Technology Education Curriculum Help (TECH) for two school districts in Western Pennsylvania. Six objectives were achieved: (1) organized two pilot school districts to serve as curriculum models in technology education for other schools throughout the commonwealth; (2) established California University as a resource center for the dissemination of curriculum materials in technology education to interested school districts; (3) developed a demonstration curriculum development project in two public schools; (4) modified the Industry and Technology Curriculum Plan to include competency-based education that fits the resources and needs of schools; (5) provided a vehicle for articulation efforts among secondary and postsecondary institutions providing technical education in Southwestern Pennsylvania; and (6) evaluated the success of Project TECH, its ability to provide significant resources for area schools, and its use as a model. The bulk of the document consists of six appendices as follows: (1) questionnaires and report of a survey of Southwestern Pennsylvania school districts on the status of technology education programs; (2) sample third-party articulation contracts; (3) course outlines and sample technology activities for grades seven (exploring technology), eight (applying technology), and nine (technological enterprise); (4) letters of support for continuing Project TECH; (5) Project TECH progress report for Chartiers-Houston school district (Pennsylvania); and (6) Project TECH project report for Cannon-McMillan school district (Pennsylvania).
