Innovations in Teaching Industrial Arts, Vocational, Technical Education. Part VII and VIII.
Canadian Teachers' Federation, Ottawa (Ontario).
This document contains parts seven and eight of a report of projects undertaken through the Hilroy Fellowship Program in Canada in 1971-72. The stated aim of the program is to encourage and reward classroom teachers who are developing new ideas for the improvement of teaching practices. The project reported in part seven concerns industrial arts, vocational, and technical education; while the three projects in part eight deal with special education. Each project description contains the following information: (1) the name and address of the teacher; (2) the name and address of the school; (3) a review of the project including the title, purpose, age, and other significant characteristics of the pupils, procedures followed, modifications, source or resource materials, and evaluation procedures used; and (4) general comments about the project. The projects include an industrial arts program designed to develop an understanding and familiarity with industrial processes through the design and manufacture of products from local resources; a project of social integration for special education students ages 12-18 years of age with slight disabilities (project description written in French); a special teaching strategy using paraprofessional assistance, designed to improve the learning potential of culturally disadvantaged children through concentrated training in specific perceptual skills; and English language development for deaf children from homes in which another language is spoken.
