The Model Industrial Technology Systems Project.
Bowling Green State Univ., OH.
This document contains materials used in a model industrial technology program that introduced technology into the curricula of elementary, middle, and high schools in three sites in Ohio: the Central site (coordinated through Ohio State University); the Northeast site (coordinated through Kent State University); and the Northwest site (coordinated through Bowling Green State University). A short summary of the second year's activities is followed by four appendices that constitute the bulk of the document. Appendix A consists of curriculum materials suitable for elementary school classes. Each of the 16 units contains a concept, activity, objective, levels of awareness, demonstration, participation, and vocabulary. Units cover the following topics: technology alphabet book, light, measure, tools, logo communications, natural/synthetic construction, pictographs, molds/fossils, ergonomics, photocopies, Rube Goldberg, paper alteration, real wood, rapid communication, bubbles and spheres, and domino constructions. Appendix B contains high school curriculum materials classified according to a technology taxonomy. High school units contain background, objectives, introduction, activity questions, activity, and suggested equipment and supplies. Eight lessons center on communication technology, and 23 lessons focus on various aspects of manufacturing technology. Appendix C includes letters to the satellite schools involved in the project, and Appendix D contains project publicity materials. (KC)
