Stoudt, John; And Others
This program guide is designed to provide the educational community with the recommended plan for industrial arts (IA) in Pennsylvania. It outlines the program that is consistent with the mandates and recommendations of the 1984 Chapter 5-Curriculum Regulations of the State Board of Education and has been developed using current national IA curriculum theories, the regulations of the State Board of Education, and the 12 Goals of Quality Education. Contents include the philosophy of IA education, definition of IA, relationship of IA and technology, and an overview of an IA program of study (level, goals, and scope). Detailed programs of study follow for elementary school (grades K-6), middle or junior high school (grades 7-9), and senior high school (grades 10-12). Each provides a description, regulation, scope, planned courses and sequences, and instructional characteristics, such as time, population, staffing, facilities, clustering, and safety. The guide also contains a diagram of the 12 goals of quality education, a summary of curriculum recommendations for IA under Chapter 5--secondary grades, a chart showing IA articulation with vocational education and postsecondary education, information on the American IA Student Association and on safety, and a listing of available resources.
