This guide for industrial arts grades 7-9 provides teachers with a curriculum for the subject cluster of graphic communications. 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 graphic communications subject cluster has three areas of study and includes 13 core modules for drafting, 14 core and 3 optional modules for graphic arts, and 19 core and 3 optional modules for graphic communications. Each module includes a major objective, estimated time, and student objectives with corresponding suggested activities and notes and suggested resources.

Other modules cover measurement, planning and design, consumerism, sketching, mechanics of drawing, pictorial drawing, orthographic drawing, drawing interpretation, drawing reproduction, electronic systems, screen process, relief printing, photography, and office graphic arts equipment.
