Review and Analysis of Curricula for Occupations in Metalworking.
Snyder, Thomas R.; Butler, Roy L.
To provide curriculum specialists and practitioners with specific information on the source and quality of instructional materials for the metal trades and area and to suggest areas of needed curriculum development, a selected review and analysis of previously processed Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) documents were made. Recognizing that technological changes have resulted in a demand for programs to train highly skilled and technical workers, this review is addressed to the principal topics of availability of curriculums, availability of guidelines for curriculum development, needed revision is prescribed skills, and needed curriculum development for metal working occupations. The 74 documents included in this study were viewed by first grouping them into the occupational categories of: (1) Machine Trades, (2) Welding, (3) Sheet Metal, (4) Metallurgy, (5) Tool and Die, and (6) Foundry-Casting. Next the documents were grouped and reviewed by their occupational level and their group or educational level. Findings of the study support the conclusion that methodology for curriculum development and prescribed skills seems to be adequate and of high quality for the occupational areas, occupational levels, and group levels.
