The Role of Industrial Arts in Career Education.
American Vocational Association, Inc., Washington, DC.
Experiences relating to industry and opportunities to understand contemporary society are a necessary part of the total development and learning common to all students at all educational levels; hence, career education must be a part of the total school curriculum. The industrial arts program plays a major role in helping students achieve the goals of career education by furnishing opportunities for exploring all facets of industry and their interrelationships. Since occupational information is best assimilated and most meaningful when it is an integral part of the total instructional program, industrial arts at each instructional level must offer content and organization that is articulated consistently with other educational levels and other parts of the total curriculum. Variety in available tools, materials, processes, and products is also an important characteristic of the industrial arts program. Suggested guidelines for selecting topics that can be integrated into the classroom and a student occupational preparation checklist are appended. (Author/SB)
