The Aviology Concept Program. Resource Monograph #21. Revised.
Becht, Paul A.; Gadsden, Thomas, Jr.
This program, consisting of 10 instructional modules (or units), evolved from "Aviology", a course created in 1971 in response to needs expressed by Florida students and teachers for a course that would present the important concepts of physics. Each of the 10 modules has three sections: (1) purpose; (2) instructional approach; and (3) summary of activities, an annotated, sequential list of all activities included in the module. Module titles include: (1) Man's Preoccupation with Flight; (2) Getting From One Place to Another; (3) Building A Plane; (4) The Science of Moving Purposefully Through the Air; (5) Anatomy of Weather; (6) Physical Effects of Flight on People; (7) Contemporary Aviation; (8) Effects of Aviation on Society; (9) Careers with Aviation; (10) Environmental Ramifications of Aviation. Although these modules, using an interdisciplinary approach, may be taught in sequence for a year-long aviation course, one or more may be selected and used as part of a general science, social science, or career guidance program.
