Aviation Curriculum Guide for Middle School Level, Secondary School Level.
Dye, Aimee
This curriculum guide consists of activities and experiences which are organized into four sections by curricular area. These areas (and the major topic areas considered) are: (1) language arts (listening, speaking, and viewing; reading comprehension; media center skills); (2) mathematics (aircraft instruments and aviation applications of mathematics); (3) science (theory of flight and aviation applications of science); and (4) social studies (history and growth of aviation; maps, charts, and globes; methods used in aerial navigation; changing concepts of time and space; and aviation careers). Each section includes a separate table of contents, an overview, a list of objectives, and lists of recommended activities and materials. The guide, designed especially for teachers who have had no special training in aviation education, is not intended to be used as a separate course of study in aviation. Rather, it can most effectively be used to supplement existing curricular materials. In addition, since there is much correlation between language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, teachers are encouraged to select from the activities and materials in any area that contribute to the achievement of their teaching goals.
