The Integration of Learning Through the Solution of Correlating Problems.
Central Michigan Univ., Mount Pleasant.
This report describes a 2-semester interdepartmental sequence which is one phase of an innovative 5-year program leading to a bachelor's degree and certification as a teacher of industrial education. During this first phase, the prospective teacher is expected to gain understandings, build attitudes, and develop special abilities needed as a teacher in a new program for industrially directed youth. The sequence consists of 4 semester hours each of general chemistry and physics as well as 6 semester hours each of mathematics, English with a major emphasis upon technical communication, and industrial education with a major emphasis upon the basic materials (woods and metals), processes, and products of modern industry. Instruction is cooperatively planned and directed by a team of four teachers, each representing a different discipline, and instructional approaches include independent study, a close association with industry, and solution of a series of correlating problems in which students solve problems requiring knowledge in two or more disciplines. Objectives and instructional outlines for 10 correlating problems are provided, and supplementary materials are appended. (SB)
