The Iowa Plan for Curriculum Improvement in Industrial Arts, K-12.
Bro, Ronald D.; Foelske, Roger
An overview of Iowa's plan for curriculum improvement in industrial arts, K-12, describes the development, content, and implementation strategies of a new State curriculum guide. Guide development involved two committees made up of teachers, supervisors, educators, and consultants from around the State who reviewed literature, recently developed guides, and professional associational publications. A draft copy of the guide was evaluated by over 50 industrial arts teachers and personnel in Iowa and surrounding States. The final draft is described as providing a framework, rather than specific content and methodology, enabling teachers to innovate their own approaches. Based upon the pyramid concept, the quide emphasizes the goals of career and industrial-technological awareness. A staff development (inservice) systems has been developed but not yet implemented beyond the awareness phase. It contains the following phases: awareness, orientation and dissemination, development and preparation, and trial and adoption. A list of selected references is included. (LH)
