New Industrial Arts for the Senior High School: A Program of Relevance in a Dynamic Age.
To be meaningful in the modern world, the senior high school industrial arts program should explore the application of technology in the solution of major social, environmental, and operational problems that face mankind. The content should be relevant for all students and involve them in the problems of the present and future. University of Maryland staff developed guidelines for the development of such a program, highlighting: (1) development of the individual, (2) process orientation, (3) greater student involvement, (4) a broad physical setting, i.e. school, community, and nation, and (5) contemporary textbook materials such as journals, magazines, and newspapers. Such a program would attract more students and develop in them concern and knowledge about the future of technology in society and its occupational implications. (CD)
