Thrower, Robert G., Ed.; Weber, Robert D., Ed.

Fifteen educators from industrial arts and related field have authored the 12 chapters of the yearbook.

Chapter 2 (Ardelle Llewellyn and Violet Robinson) is specifically directed to developmental aspects of middle childhood. Technology: The Source, chapter 3 (H. G. Gilbert) sets a general direction for the comprehensive coverage of industry. Chpater 4 (Norma Heasley) provides coverage on various aspects of curriculum design. Contemporary programs (W. R. Miller) and environmental designs (Eberhard Thieme) are the topics for chapters 5 and 6. Chapter 7 (Gardner Boyd) discusses the role of industrial arts personnel, and chapter 8 (Franklin Ingram and Vito Pace) analyzes methodologies of teacher education. Historical reflections (Robert Hostetter) and philosophical positions (William Hoots, Jr.) are presented in chapters 9 and 10. Chapter 11 (W. A. Downs) includes a compilation of doctoral degree studies, master's studies, and non-degree research. The concluding chapter (Delmar Larsen) is a selected bibliography. (EA)
