[Individualized Material for Industrial Education Based on the AVA Booklet "A Guide to Improving Instruction in Industrial Arts".]
Wayne State Univ., Detroit, MI.
This package of individualized curriculum materials for industrial arts, developed by the 1969-70 Experienced Teacher Fellowship Program for teacher and student use, is a result of an in-depth study of the 1968 revision of the American Vocational Association's booklet, "A Guide to Improving Instruction in Industrial Arts." The 10 major units included are: (1) Industry and Civilization, (2) The Industry, (3) Organization and Management, (4) Research and Development, (5) Planning for Production and Manufacturing, (6) Production and Manufacturing, (7) Distribution, (8) Service, (9) Hand Tools and Simple Machines, and (10) Sophisticated Machines. Each unit, identified by a prefix letter, contains color coded individualized packages of information for student use, teacher use, and teacher reference information which outlines special preparations or materials required for student or teacher packages. Each package within the unit is designed to be flexible for use in Grade 7 through Grade 12 and with slight modification it can be used for lower or higher grades. Several teacher-designed simulation games about industry are included. A related document is available as ED 024 814 (RIE, April 1969). (GR)
