The Wisconsin Guide to Local Curriculum Improvement in Industrial Education, K-12.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This guide for the development of local curricula is intended for use by teachers concerned with the study of industry at any grade level K-12. The basic premise of the document is that a general knowledge of industry, as an institution in society, is essential to all students, and the source of the content is industry itself. The identified body of content is appropriate for all students; however methodology and emphasis need to be adjusted to accommodate individual student differences, and content will need to be adapted to grade level. A rationale for industrial education is followed by definitions of industry and industrial education. The objectives, content components, and content organizers are discussed in detail and are followed by suggestions for using the guide in local curriculum planning, development, and review. Examples of subobjectives and activities; provisions for learners to interact, make judgements, and draw conclusions; supplementary references; and a bibliography complete the document. (SA)
