Polette, Doug, Ed.
This monograph provides guidelines for the technology teacher education facility planner. The first chapter is a general introduction. Chapter 2 describes a procedure that may be used to design a technology teacher education laboratory or to remodel a traditional industrial arts laboratory. These five sequential components are discussed: formulation of a philosophy of technology education, identification of the purpose of technology education, development of a curriculum rationale, preparation of a curriculum plan, and completion of the needs assessment. Chapter 3 focuses on identification of instructional support equipment. Chapter 4 suggests guidelines for designing the learning environment for technology teacher education. Suggestions are included for planning classrooms, laboratories, and extended learning environments. Chapter 5 addresses assessing existing facilities and the options of modification or expansion. Appendixes include 25 references, a needs assessment checklist, and a facilities checklist. (YLB)
