Guidelines for Aviation Education in Schools of Pennsylvania with Annotated Teacher's Course of Study and Planning Chart.
Butler, Richard T.; Smith, William J.
The guidelines for an aviation education program give directions and provide coordination and correlation for the program in Pennsylvania's schools. Chapter 1 discusses the approach to aviation education--the problem, procedure, and definition of terms. Chapter 2 briefly outlines teacher responsibilities and student advantages. Focusing on teaching procedures for applied aviation education, Chapter 3 presents the curriculum plan structure that emphasizes theoretical application (methodology), practical application, simulated flight experiences, and actual experiences (aviation and aerospace materials, field trips, and personal activities). Chapters 4 and 5 present the lesson structure and a course outline, annotating the course of study with behavioral objectives covering the following unit topics: methodology--the nature of the universe, aviation in retrospect, geo--natural habitat of man, aeronautical science, flight technology, economic opportunities and problems, and flight techniques (simulation). The teachers' planning chart, in Chapter 6, incorporates units within a time sequences for a flexible 36-week course of study based on five 45-minute classes per week. A summary concerning applied aviation education is found in Chapter 7. (JB)
