A Curriculum Guide for Industrial Arts Plastic Technology. Intermediate and Secondary Level Students.
Landers, Jack M.
This curriculum guide is an aid to administrators and instructors of industrial arts and vocational-technical school programs for the development of meaningful curriculum in plastics. The materials are intended for use at four levels: level I, exploring plastic technology; Level II, basic plastic technology; and levels III and IV, applied plastic technology. Introductory materials include a plastic technology teaching strategem, objectives of an industrial arts education program and of plastic education, listings of the behavioral objectives for the four levels, and a brief discussion of safety. The curriculum consists of nine units: plastic industry in perspective, synthetic material technology, product design, finishing and decorating of plastics, plastic converters, plastic fabrication, quantity production processes, manpower and the plastics industry, and the plastics industry in perspective, revisited. Each unit is presented in a column format in which topics (curriculum content) are correlated with level, teacher activities, and student activities. A plastics bibliography follows. Appendixes include annotated listings of films, slide and cassette materials, filmstrips, and videocassettes; a plastics periodical list; an encyclopedia of associations; lists of general equipment, plastics equipment, and plastics tools; a listing of vendors of plastics supplies and equipment; plastics instructional materials and resources; a chart of career patterns; and a competency profile.
