Manufacturing Curriculum Grant. Final Report.
Scarborough, Jule Dee
A manufacturing curriculum for secondary vocational programs was designed to bridge the gap between grades 9-10 level courses and the community college-level curriculum of the Illinois Plan for Industrial Education. During the project, a literature review of manufacturing curriculum materials was conducted, a manufacturing conceptual framework was constructed by an industrial task force, and a curriculum content outline was produced. Content includes the following: occupational safety and health; business economics; measurements, drawing interpretation, layout, and inspection; product and process control; quality; and marketing and promoting manufacturing skills (job search methods). The curriculum format was based on a survey of a random sample of industrial arts teachers. An article on the project was submitted to a scholarly journal. (Appendixes, which make up most of the document, include the following: (1) a brief summary of the literature search; (2) draft curriculum goals, outlines, and objectives; (3) summary of manufacturing curriculum questionnaires; (4) and a manufacturing curriculum activity plan format.)
