This teacher's guide is designed to help high school industrial arts teachers plan activities to develop their students' awareness of technology in our culture and the variety of related careers available to them. Discussed first are the objectives, scope, and sequence of industrial arts. Next, the special characteristics and needs of adolescents, women in industrial arts programs, disadvantaged or disabled students, and students from various ethnic and racial groups are examined. Discussed in the next two chapters is the need to incorporate basic skills and entrepreneurship education activities into industrial arts curricula. The fifth chapter consists of a series of program goals, course goals, and suggested activities for use in covering the following subject areas in an industrial arts curriculum: graphic communications, energy and power, materials and processes, academic skills, employment opportunities and career choice, safety, multicultural awareness, and entrepreneurship. Provided next are a series of course outlines devoted to the following topics: graphic communications, entrepreneurship, robotics, computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing, nondestructive testing, properties of materials, manufacturing processes, energy and power, voice synthesis, fiber optics, and optoelectronics. The final chapter discusses various resources available to industrial arts teachers, including advisory committees, student organizations, publishers, regional coordinators, journals, professional associations, and curriculum and resource centers.
