New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Occupational Education Curriculum Development.
Guidelines for the development of courses and programs of industrial arts for local school districts in New York State are provided in this guide designed for administrators, curriculum personnel, supervisors, and teachers. Following a discussion of student program options, a basic series of suggested courses (titles and course topics) are provided as a starting point for the development of local industrial arts programs. The courses include the following: ceramics (products and structural ceramics); drawing (developmental and production drawing); electricity; graphic arts (photographics and offset); metals (bench and production metals); (plastic products and processes); power mechanics (small engines and vehicle power); and woods (products and structure). The next series of courses provided are suggested survey courses designed primarily for conceptual development. These include graphics technology (publications and engineering drawing), production technology (construction and manufacturing), and power technology (transportation and aerospace). Following this, program development steps and course development procedures are briefly discussed. The next section provides a list and brief description of the information that should accompany an application for course approval for New York State Diploma Credit; this includes program description, individual course information (title, length, grade level, prerequisites, content outline, and references and resources). An example of individual course information is provided. The last section (the major part of the document) includes an approved teaching guide for a course in wood products. Listed in column format are student objectives, instructional strategies, student learning experiences, and evaluative suggestions. The topics covered in the teaching guide are design, tools and machines, assembly, fasteners, finishes, forestry, and industrial organization. (JH)
