Review and Analysis of Instructional Materials for Manufacturing.
Nelson, Rex A.; Selvidge, Lewis R., Jr.
The purpose of this paper is to aid curriculum specialists, state personnel, local supervisors, and teachers of industrial education in assessing the status of current instructional and curriculum materials developed for the study of manufacturing within an industrial arts curriculum. A literature review was conducted by means of three computer searches of ERIC journals and other relevant indexes. "Manufacturing", as part of the industrial arts curriculum, has a commonality of content which may be presented to students through simulated learning activities in a variety of classroom and industrial settings. A model for program development was recommended in order to meet the educational needs of people from Kindergarten through post doctorate levels for curriculum materials on manufacturing, which are presently emphasized mainly as an overview course for the middle grades or junior high school level. This model is entitled "Common Body of Knowledge for Management Consultants". A comprehensive educational delivery system for manufacturing curriculums should be further developed to present this common body of knowledge. (Author/AG)
