Industrial Arts Metalworking for Intermediate and Junior High Schools. Curriculum Bulletin. 1978-79 Series. No. 8.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Div. of Educational Planning and Support.
This curriculum bulletin is designed to present seventh and eighth graders with an overview of the metalworking industry from the acquisition of raw materials to the fabrication of the completed product. The manual is organized into five major instructional units: sheet metal, wrought metal, jewelry and art metal, bench and machine metal, and cast metal. Each unit is taught from the standpoint of its distinct tools, machines, operations, and processes with a consideration of the relationships that exist between each of the areas. The course provides a dual approach by considering unit and mass production methods of making a product. Each unit contains the following curriculum components: unit production, demonstration and related lesson plans, instruction sheet, related information sheet, mass production methods, occupational information, test questions, alternate product ideas, and selected related materials. In addition to the unit sections, there are comprehensive sections on the course organization, shop management, unit and mass production, course content, guidance, and teaching aids and materials. The manual is illustrated with photographs, charts, and drawings. (CSS)
