Ritz, John M.; And Others
This document--intended to help technology education teachers plan their classroom curriculum for secondary school and college students--contains units on getting to know technology; problem solving; systems and subsystems; how technology affects people and the environment; controlling technological systems; how resources are processed by technological systems; problem-solving tools; and the impact of technology, including the choices and decisions it necessitates. The sociocultural impact of each of those topics and its relationship to the common elements of technological systems are covered in each unit. Units also typically include narrative information, line illustrations, photographs, a constructional activity, examples of how math and science can be used to support the students' constructional activities and provide the motivation for students to make the connections between technical education and math and science, a student quiz, possible student outcomes, and references.
