Industrial Arts and Environmental Education: Environmental Concepts Judged Applicable to Industrial Arts Teaching Areas by Industrial Arts Teacher Educators.
Cauley, Michael Jon
To establish a definite relationship between industrial arts and environmental education, an attempt was made to determine which environmental concepts should be taught in industrial arts as a subject matter area, and which concepts should be taught in the various teaching areas within the traditional industrial arts programs. A qualified jury selected 53 concepts, which were categorized by 313 industrial arts teacher educators in specific teaching areas. It was found that 52 of the 53 environmental concepts were considered applicable to the industrial arts teaching areas at the 66 percent level of agreement. Percentage figures of the total were derived to indicate those concepts most applicable to specific areas, which are: 3.8 percent to each of the areas of metals, graphic arts, and plastics-crafts, 17.3 percent to drafting, 23.1 percent to power, and 48.1 percent for woods. It was concluded that there is a concrete relationship between industrial arts and environmental education, and that the concepts used in this study should be included in the traditional industrial arts teacher educator programs.
