Manufacturing Education Curriculum Project.
Umstattd, William D.
The Manufacturing Education Curriculum Project's feasibility study concerned with industrial arts curriculum development in manufacturing for the senior high school level is described. The need for an industrial arts curriculum which meets and reflects present and future trends is discussed in the introduction, followed by a review of the organizational process and a listing of the objectives developed to facilitate the proposed project. Both the sources and the rationale which accompanied the curricular research and technological research are examined, resulting in the identification of 11 trends in the manufacturing process. Six courses, developed from a review of curriculum guidelines (based on research by educational theorists and technologists), project research, and proposed directions, are listed and described. These courses include (1) Introduction to Manufacturing Systems, (2) Metal and Non-Metal Processing, (3) Graphic Communication Material-Processing, (4) Producing and Servicing Electro/Mechanical Products, (5) Producing and Servicing Electrical/Electronic Products, and (6) Contemporary Manufacturing Problems. Parameters and Constraints Affecting the Course, Course Descriptions (including Organization, Management, and Evaluation Needs), and an outline of the conclusions based on project research are included.
