Industrial Arts Curriculum Improvements: A Change Agent's Guide.
Mason, Emmett E.
In reviewing innovative industrial arts curriculums and suitable methods for their adoption, this report presents the major objectives of 20 innovative programs in four categories: (1) integrative programs, (2) interpretation of industry programs, (3) occupational family programs, and (4) technology-oriented programs. Materials were gathered by computer and manual searches of Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) publications and "International Dissertation Abstracts." After an analysis of the literature and a survey of curriculum alternatives, the report examines methods of achieving adoption of curriculum improvements, using consultants, supervisors, opinion leaders, and principals. An extensive bibliography, including reference materials determined by a computer search, is included. This report should be beneficial to change agents interested in implementing innovative industrial arts programs. (GEB)
