Industrial Arts/Technology Education. A Guide for Developing Contemporary Industrial Arts/Technology Education Curricula.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Vocational Education.
Based on the philosophical statements and directions developed by the Jackson's Mill Project (Charleston, West Virginia, 1981) this operational guide was developed to provide local or state curriculum designers with methods of implementation. Content and suggested activities for various technology-related courses are provided, along with models for implementing the courses in small, medium, and large schools. The 10 sections of the guide cover the following topics: a rationale and mission for industrial arts/technology education; structuring industrial arts/technology education programs; structuring courses; introductory foundation course structure; manufacturing course structures; communication course structures; construction course structures; transportation course structures; synthesis course structures; and initiating and implementing new and improved programs. The course structures sections list course title, description, and objectives; grade level; and content with representative activities and time allocations. Appendixes to the guide include content-area taxonomies, a base for curriculum derivation, and a model of the human productive activity cycle. (KC)
