Values & Attitudes Handbook. The Wisconsin Guide to Local Curriculum Improvement in Industrial Education, K-12.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Designed as a resource for implementing the Wisconsin Guide to Local Curriculum Improvement in Industrial Education, K-12, this handbook is intended to aid industrial educators in developing and incorporating values and attitudes in their programs. The first section presents a values rationale to provide a set of ideas to use in developing a statement for local use. The next section contains a variety of activities and strategies for examining and clarifying values, attitudes, and feelings in industrial education. First, some commonly used strategies for values and attitudes activities are summarized. Then a list of value and conflict problems is suggested for several traditional industrial arts concentrations to which the strategies may be adapted. Finally, some activities are provided which represent the strategies described, including value sheets, values continuum, rank ordering, values voting, role playing, questionnaire making and taking (attitude inventories), goal sheets, alternatives search, unfinished sentences, self/peer-evaluation, and simulation. Activities may be used as is, adapted by teacher, or used as models. The final section of the handbook includes listings of resources such as articles, resources, films, duplicating masters, kits, and tape programs. (YLB)
