North Dakota State Board for Vocational Education, Bismarck. Research Coordinating Unit.; Devils Lake Public Schools, ND.
The guideline presents two 12-week courses involving an interdisciplinary, partly coeducational, prevocational career exploration program in consumer and homemaking and industrial arts at the eighth grade level, and also a supplementary mathematics program. It is designed to give students an opportunity to explore occupations for themselves and to appreciate the occupations of people in both fields. The first part outlines a 12-week course in Home Economics and suggests activities in the following consumer and homemaking areas: food service careers, child care, clothing and consumer education, housing, employability, and self development. Each activity includes: purpose, objective, activities, materials, and evaluation. The 12-week Industrial Arts course is intended to instill in the student an attitude and understanding toward tools, processes, techniques, and organization within the construction cluster. Activities in the following areas are described: safety, draftsman, employee-employer relationships, surveyor, heavy equipment, electrician, plumber, bricklaying and masonry, tools and equipment, and construction. Each suggestion includes purpose, procedure, and activities. The math program is designed to acquaint students with the uses of mathematics in all aspects of life using examples from home economics, construction, and family budgeting. (Author/EC)
