The purpose of "Project Open" is to provide opportunities for young people to understand the highly complex technological world in which they live, and thus focuses on the industrial arts. The document is divided into two parts, each of which relates to one of the high schools involved. Both of these parts are divided into six sections. Section one discusses the nature of the project in relation to the community, the school system, the teachers, and the students. The purpose of the project is set forth in section two; this section includes long- and short-range objectives, student and community needs, and a list of course descriptions. The third section describes inservice training, course design and implementation, physical facility modification, and industrial arts club activities. Section four is comprised of internal and external evaluation reports by the principal, teachers, consultants, the state curriculum development specialist, the field coordinator, and the field liaison. Future progress is discussed in section five, and section six (the appendix) includes the contract agreement and course content charts. (BD)
