STS Resource Package.
This packet contains four papers that are designed to help broaden teachers' perspectives on the range of potential content and programs for technology education, as well as science, technology, and society (STS). The material provides basic instruction and information that would be useful in conducting interdisciplinary studies involving technology education classes along with areas such as economics, social studies, history, mathematics, and science. The four papers cover the following topics: (1) technological alternatives to problems facing society; (2) technology in our community; (3) technology in our homes; and (4) the technological evolution of a city. Each booklet outlines unique features of the concept, grade level to which it is suited, goals, instructional strategies, other methodologies, student productivity, student development, interdisciplinary potential, and resources. The packet also contains four black and white posters corresponding to the concepts. (KC)
