Elementary Industrial Arts--Philosophies, Values, and Typical Programs.
Miller, F. Milton
Part 1 of this paper deals with the major philosophies of elementary industrial arts. Five philosophy groupings are identified: Industrial Arts (1) as a means of developing habits, attitudes, problem solving abilities, and interests, (2) as a means to meet developmental needs of children, (3) as a program for involving students in making objects for the inherent value of the objects themselves, (4) as a vehicle through which children acquire occupational awareness, and (5) as a means of correlating and enriching the elementary curriculum. The values and benefits of an elementary industrial arts program--satisfying needs, clarifying and enriching and broadening concepts, applying knowledge, increasing desire to learn, developing problem solving skills, producing three-dimensional objects, increasing understanding of industry and technology, and developing desired behaviors and attitudes--are enumerated and discussed in part 2. Included in part 3 is a listing of tools, materials, and construction activities which were identified in a study of 20 career education programs as being most effective. (TM)
