Industrial Arts Curriculum Guide--Level I for North Dakota Secondary Schools Using the Cluster Technologies Approach. Final Report. Research Series No. 55.
This guide was developed as part of a curriculum research project designed to improve the teaching/learning process for industrial arts education in North Dakota secondary schools and to restructure subject matter into the cluster areas for efficient teaching and delivery. The guide is intended to assist industrial arts teachers in developing planned programs and courses (at the junior high school or level one phase of industrial arts) that reflect concepts related to industry and technology. It outlines the rationale and objectives for the program, content, student competencies to be developed, student learning activities, and instructional resources for each of five cluster areas. The five cluster areas included are insights into industry and technology, graphic communication, manufacturing, construction, and energy and power. Samples are included of the units and of student competencies and activity sheets in outline form listing the rationale, unit objectives, cluster area knowledge structure, and instructional resources needed to teach the unit. The appendix contains materials used in conducting the curriculum guide rewriting project. (TA)
