Standards for Industrial Arts Programs.
Dugger, William E., Jr.; And Others
Developed by over 400 industrial arts teachers, state and local supervisors, teacher educators, and consultants, these standards are comparative statements that were developed to determine the strengths and weaknesses of industrial arts programs. While the standards were written primarily for secondary school level industrial arts programs, many of them are also applicable for elementary and postsecondary programs. The standards are divided according to the following ten topics; philosophy (development, utilization, review and revision); instructional program (goals, objectives, content, scheduling); student populations served (individual differences, sex equity); instructional staff (legal/regulatory qualifications, professional responsibilities, personal qualifications); administration and supervision (staffing, planning and organizing, budgeting, directing, monitoring, data collecting and reporting, communicating); support services (human resources, physical resources, financial resources); instructional strategies (planning, implementing, reviewing and revising); public relations (target populations, media); safety and health (program, physical environment, records); and evaluation process (establishing a data collection and analysis system, collecting and analyzing data, reporting, decision making). Also provided are forms for completing an industrial arts program profile and a deficiency corrections report. (A series of related industrial arts program guides are available separately--see note.)
