Industrial Arts Education: A Review and Synthesis of the Research, 1968-1979. Information Series 183.
Dyrenfurth, Michael J.; Householder, Daniel L.
This monograph presents a compilation of research in industrial arts education from 1968 through 1979. The first section reviews studies which deal with the philosophical bases of industrial arts and which examine its historical development. The second section identifies studies that emphasized industrial arts' role as an integral component of a comprehensive human resources delivery system. The next section cites projects pertaining to the programmatic aspects of industrial arts. The development of industrial arts curriculum is investigated in the fourth section. Studies in the fifth section examine variables affecting the learning process. The next section discusses studies devoted to instructional media, methods, and materials. Studies investigating the guidance characteristics of industrial arts are found in the seventh section. The studies reviewed in the eighth section examined facility-program interaction in terms of facilities, equipment, and safety. Next, studies on evaluation are divided into four major categories: development of tests/instruments, interaction analysis, program evaluation techniques, and the effects of evaluation. The final three sections review, respectively, studies in teacher education, administration and supervision, and professional concerns. A summary chapter and bibliography conclude the document. (CT)
