The Development of a Course of Study for Industrial Arts Education at the Elementary School Level. Research Report.
Hoots, William R.
The development of a course of study for industrial arts in grades one through eight, which was based on material presented on state adopted basal textbooks, was the purpose of this project. Instruction resulting from the course of study was to serve six functions: social, cultural, consumer, recreational, occupational, and technical. Specific project objectives were to extract and organize material from the texts and to dev"lop a course of study keyed to texts and suggested reference materials. Topics keyed to these books were organized under six headings for each grade: (1) Communication, (2) Construction, (3) Manufacturing, (4) Transportation, (5) Power, and (6) Service. Following this a course outline was developed for each grade from these topics, if they met five stated criteria. The outlines include text and reference keys and suggested activities for each topic. The bibliography lists 84 textbooks and 48 supplementary references. (EM)
