Physics and Industrial Arts: A Working Partnership.
Thompson, Dale E.
The physics-industrial arts partnership is a program developed to strengthen high school students' theoretical and practical knowledge within the general areas of physics. It is designed for two groups of students--science students enrolled in physics classes and industrial students enrolled in woods, metals, auto mechanics, or electronics. The program's major objective is to improve students' overall knowledge of physics by providing a practical experience for physics/science students and a theoretical experience for industrial arts students. Three basic approaches to a partnership between science and industrial arts departments are a simple tool lending process, a laboratory loan system, and interdepartmental cooperation. This final--and best--approach would be accomplished by trading classes, trading facilities, or team teaching. (Two sample lessons plans are attached.) (YLB)
