Ceramics, Project Ideas for Industrial Arts.
Hastings, James R., Ed.
This book of ceramic project ideas is for teacher or student use in secondary industrial arts courses. It was developed in a workshop by teachers. The content objectives are to provide useful projects and units of instruction and to give direction to ceramics instruction which is in keeping with a changing technology. Forty-one project plans are presented under these units: (1) Hand Forming, (2) Slab Constructing, (3) Free Forming, (4) Press Molding, (5) Solid Casting, (6) Slip Casting, (7) Extruding, (8) Throwing and Turning, and (9) Jiggering. Each unit gives project plans, student activities, project procedures, related technical information, teacher demonstrations, related cultural information, and references. Similarly organized units cover 13 tools or pieces of equipment such as a jigger arm, stilts, an extrusion press, and a turning box. Information concerning the making of glazes is also included. Supplementary materials include a glossary of ceramic terms, a bibliography of books and periodicals, and indexes to related technical and cultural topics. (EM)
