Classroom Activities in Construction: 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 transportation. 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 construction 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 six sections of the guide include 14 activities grouped under the following topics: research and development, building the structure, installing utility systems, servicing the project, planning, and directing. 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)
