A Study to Investigate and Clarify the Role of Industrial Arts in Colorado and Its Interface with Vocational Education: Final Report: Volume I, Narrative Report.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins.
The study focuses on the purpose and role of industrial arts in Colorado with particular attention to its relationship with vocational education. The study was based on: (1) a review of current literature (presented in Volume 2, which is not available for copyright reasons); (2) data collected from industrial arts, trade and industrial education, and secondary technical education teachers in Colorado as well as information about school programs and industrial arts programs in other States; and (3) nine area communication sessions throughout the State conducted by the Colorado Industrial Arts Association. A 22-page discussion of the collected data is presented with supporting tables. A three-day conference was held to interpret the data and to propose recommendations. Participants included 25 teachers, supervisors, teacher educators, local vocational education directors, State department personnel, and career education specialists. They concluded that industrial arts in Colorado should be designed to serve roles in career education, general education, and pre-vocational education. Appended materials, comprising half the document, include copies of the teacher, school, supervisor, and State industrial arts association survey instruments; forms used in the communication session; and the conference agenda, lists of participants and discussion group members, and summarized speeches and comments by conference guests.
