Development of Instructional Materials for Industrial Arts Education in North Dakota. Final Report. Research Series No. 47.
As phase 2 of the long-range plan to improve the teaching/learning process for industrial arts education in North Dakota secondary schools, a project was conducted to prepare curriculum materials vital to the implementation of the suggested curriculum structure outlined in phase 1. The project objective was to develop a draft copy of a curriculum guide for industrial arts education in secondary schools. Specific goals were (1) to determine the philosophical rationale for each of the five instructional areas outlined in the suggested master plan (insights into industry and technology, graphic communication, manufacturing, construction, and energy/power), (2) to establish objectives for conducting learning activities in each of the five areas, to identify and structure the body-of-knowledge for each of the areas, (4) to develop a common format to be used in the preparation of instructional units, and (5) to develop instructional units for each of the five cluster areas. The draft copy of the curriculum guide was printed and made available to selected teachers who will be field testing during the 1976-77 academic year within eight different school settings. The report briefly describes methods and procedures, findings and analysis, and conclusions and recommendations. Most of the report consists of appendixes including an outline of the format for the instructional materials; rationale, goals, and curriculum design for the program; and draft copies of the curriculum guides for each of the five instructional areas.
