Focusing Industrial Arts on Career Education. A Handbook for Industrial Arts Teachers and Students.
DiPaul, H. Bert
This manual is intended to aid high school industrial arts teachers to infuse career exploration and career education into the industrial arts curriculum. It relates the specific skills learned in various industrial art classes to various occupations, providing a means for students to "try on" occupations via projects and self-assessment. Following instructions to the teacher and to the student, the handbook is divided into six sections, with a total of nineteen units. Section 1 introduces the manual, and presents occupations which can be sampled in the school shop (printing, drafting, metal working, quality control and woodworking) in addition to instructions for sampling assembly work and motion and time-study analysis. Section 2 leads the student to knowledge of self: his or her interests, aptitudes, and personality characteristics, and shows him/her how to relate these traits to careers. Section 3 provides knowledge about occupations, explaining how to study and analyze occupations, how occupations are classified, how to match personal characteristics to career requirements, and what occupations will need workers. In section 4 technology is discussed from both a historical and future perspective, including early manufacturing processes, mass production, quality control, automation, and innovations. Section 5 explains how to prepare a resume and how to get a job and keep it, while the last section contains references and a list of career-exploration films. (KC)
