Industrial Prep, Volume Three, Junior Year--Contents: Physics and English.
Hackensack Public Schools, NJ.
This Grade 11 teaching guide contains two curriculums which focus on 10 team physics projects and five thematic units in English. The 10 group physics projects are derived from the application of three laboratory units on the properties of matter, mechanics, and electricity. The outlined English curriculum ranges from such specifically pragmatic topics as work preparation and physics to more broadly applicable units on television, economics, and prejudice, stressing relevance to the needs and interests of vocational students. The extensive economics unit deals with consumer credit and buying used cars. The unit on prejudice outlines the causes and effects of social discrimination, provides literary illustrations with suggested projects and a bibliography, and discusses prejudice in mass media. Multimedia resources and ideas for the guide include project lists, discussion questions, visual aids, and student reading materials. Procedures for implementing goals include use of student worksheets for each physics lesson, a student evaluation sheet, term definitions, and detailed daily lesson plans in outline form. Developed by a group of educators from Hackensack High School, New Jersey, this is the third volume in a comprehensive 3-year interdisciplinary program in industrial preparation for vocational students. Others are available as VT 015 227-VT 015 231 in this issue. (AG)
