This guide for industrial arts grades 7-9 provides teachers with a curriculum for the subject cluster of power/energy. An "Overview" section presents the rationale, discusses how the content of the program is related to the developmental stages of the adolescent, describes the structure of the industrial arts program, and lists program goals and objectives. The "Implementation" section covers program design, scope and sequence, time allotment, integration, selection of materials, evaluation, and students with special needs. The power/energy subject cluster has 3 areas of study and includes 13 core modules for electricity/electronics, 11 for power mechanics, and 11 for power/energy. Each module includes a major objective, estimated time, and student objectives with corresponding suggested activities and notes and suggested resources. Three modules common to all three areas are student orientation, safety, and careers. Module titles common to the three areas (although the modules themselves are different) are measurement, planning and design, consumerism, tools and fasteners, energy sources, and energy conversion. Other modules include components, energy transmission, transmission of power and energy, energy systems, power systems, electrical wiring, and routine care and maintenance. A bibliography is appended. (YLB)
