The Pennsylvania industrial arts curriculum guide for grades 7 and 8 reflects changing philosophy and practices in industrial arts education as well as incorporating the effect of technological changes. Objectives unique to industrial arts education are: (1) to develop literacy in a technological civilization, (2) to develop an insight and understanding of industry and its place in society, (3) to discover and develop student talents, (4) to develop problem-solving abilities, and (5) to develop skill in safe use of tools and machines. The guide includes a content outline for three content areas of industrial arts: (1) visual communications, (2) power, and (3) industrial materials. The visual communications sequence on graphic arts is directed toward extending the student's ability to visually communicate. A power unit focuses on various energy forms, the matter from which they are derived, and conversion of energy forms into useful work. An industrial materials content area deals with a study of production and construction materials. Each unit provides second level behavioral objectives, content outline, a suggested model of instructional activity, and instructional materials. (Author/EA)
