Iowa High School Industrial Arts Curriculum Project. Report on Year One of Phase II.
Des Moines Public Schools, IA.; Iowa State Univ. of Science and Technology, Ames.
Phase II of the Iowa High School Industrial Arts project sought to revise industrial arts content to include the infusion of new technologies, structured mathematics and science content, and a less project-oriented approach to teaching. The project identified a philosophical basis and a content structure; set priorities for development and delivery of content; identified and prepared delivery vehicles; and evaluated the vehicles, the philosophical basis, and the content structure. During the first year of Phase II, the philosophical basis, the content structure, and the content priorities were generated; the other areas will be worked on during the next two years. The products chosen were a group of modules representing each of the major content areas and a curriculum guide designed to communicate the philosophical basis and the content structure. This document contains the project report and extensive appendixes that contain lists of planning members, fall conference and meeting reports, evaluation procedures, a project personnel chart, a sample of a test item bank, a list of workshop participants, and three modules. These modules, which make up a large part of the document, cover graphic communications, energy and power, and manufacturing. Each module consists of a rationale, objectives, sources of information, and detailed lesson plans for each unit. (KC)
