Classroom Activities in Transportation: Technology Education.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This curriculum supplement was designed to correlate directly with "A Guide to Curriculum Planning in Technology Education," published by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. It is also a companion book to three other classroom activity compilations, one in each of the other three major systems of technology--manufacturing, communications, and construction. The entire set--the curriculum guide and the four activity books--follows the content organization given in the "Technology Education Content" fold-out chart in this guide. The activities are organized on the basis of how each supports one of the transportation concepts identified on the chart. Materials for this supplement were gathered from throughout Wisconsin and several other states, and most of them were developed by teachers. The seven sections of the guide include 16 activities grouped under the following topics: mediums (map reading); moving; energy conversion; propulsion systems; control (safety); guidance systems; and structural systems. Each activity consists of a description, resources needed, objectives, evaluation focus, procedures, information sheets illustrated with line drawings, and (sometimes) tests and answer sheets. (KC)
