The Maryland Plan. The Junior High School Program in Industrial Arts.
Smith, W. Harley; And Others
This brief publication conveys the thinking, concerns and rationale behind the Maryland Plan for a junior high school industrial arts program. A development model begins with the aims of education in a democracy and extends through proposed outcomes. Specific roles for the teacher are to assist students in the development of skills and techniques, to promote increased resourcefulness on the part of students, and to guide students who need assistance in the solution of problems. Points that are presented, including a limited amount of discussion are: (1) Developmental tasks, (2) Points for emphasis, (3) Student opportunities, (4) Teacher roles and characteristics, and (5) Content sources. The unit for Grade 7 is the anthropological study of technology, for Grade 8 it is the contemporary study of industry, and for Grade 9 the contemporary study of industry and technology. (GEB)
