New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Industrial Arts Education.
The brochure illustrates the program design for industrial arts education in New York State and briefly describes the early secondary and high school levels and the basic and technology series. The instructional content on the primary level emphasizes orientation to the nature of work and is divided into five major time blocks according to each grade level (K-4): work environment, service, manufacturing, communications, and power. The intermediate level (5-6) stresses exploration with tools, examining construction in the fifth grade and transportation in the sixth grade. The early secondary level (7-8) examines the utilization of materials and forces with grade seven covering ceramics, woods, drawing, and plastics and grade eight covering metals, graphic arts, electricity, and power mechanics. The secondary level, focusing on experiences in industrial technology, is divided into two series of electives: the basic series for the majority of students and the technology series for the more able students. The basic series includes ceramics, electricity, drawing, graphic arts, metals, power mechanics, plastics, and woods. The technology series deals with graphics technology, production technology, and power technology. (JB)
