Symposium III Proceedings (Muncie, Indiana, October 23, 1981).
Wright, Thomas, Ed.
Symposium III, a continuation of a series of meetings, was designed for exchanging ideas and structures for contemporary industrial arts curriculum development. The meeting provided practical classroom-oriented suggestions for teaching industry/technology-based industrial arts. The design of the symposium provided a keynote address, which gave a rationale for teaching technology, followed by two program interest sessions. At each session, two leaders in their area of expertise presented an answer to "What should be taught and how could it be organized?" The interest sessions concentrated on five major curriculum areas: communications, construction, manufacturing (enterprise and material processing), and transportation power and energy. The transcripts of the proceedings in this document give suggestions for teachers to improve their teaching in each of the five areas. Articles are illustrated with line drawings. (KC)
