A Curriculum Guide for Industrial Arts in the Elementary School.
Williams, Michael J., Ed.
Materials contained in this curriculum guide were developed to provide both regular and special education instructors at the elementary school level as well as elementary school industrial arts consultants with some understanding of how industrial arts activities can be used to enrich the elementary school program. Discussion covers a definition and philosophy behind using industrial arts activities at the elementary school level; general goals of the elementary school and industrial arts in the elementary school; objectives to stress with the gifted, the educable mentally retarded, children with learning disabilities, children with emotional problems, and children with physical handicaps; developmental tasks of elementary school youth; methods of integrating industrial arts with other school subjects; and methods of implementing career education in the elementary school. The major portion of the guide consists of applicable projects and activities by grade level (K-6) including a description of project objectives, project developmental tasks, integration of project with other subject areas, how project facilitates career education, construction procedure, bill of materials, tools needed, and working drawings. A suggested outline for a workshop to be conducted by the industrial arts consultant-specialist for elementary school teachers, a suggested tool list, and a bibliography are appended. (Editor/TA)
