Strong, Merle E.; Schaefer, Carl J.
Intended for teachers and administrators in trade, industrial, and technical education, the book is organized so that each chapter may stand on its own. A broad spectrum of areas is covered in the 13 chapters: (1) historical background; (2) trade and industrial education and the labor market; (3) definition and objective of trade, industrial, and technical education; (4) determining program needs; (5) trade, industrial, and technical education programs; (6) the administration of trade, industrial, and technical education; (7) labor, management, and community relations; (8) guidance and counseling: placement and followup; (9) staff recruitment and development; (10) professional organizations; (11) VICA: trade, industrial, and technical education's youth club; (12) program evaluation and accreditation; and (13) major issues in trade, industrial, and technical education. Each chapter concludes with a questions and activities section and a list of suggested source materials. Appended materials contain additional examples and information, and include: discussions held over a three year period by a joint committee appointed by the Industrial Arts and Trade and Industrial Education Divisions of the American Vocational Association; a list of Industrial Service Occupations Educational Programs; and program questionnaires.
