Technology Education. A North Dakota Curricular Framework.
This curricular framework is designed to assist administrators and teachers in planning, developing, and implementing technology education programs in North Dakota. It provides a philosophical foundation and a broad outline from which educators may construct comprehensive school technology education programs. The materials will aid local school systems in planning local curricula, developing a local philosophy, defining a local scope and sequence, evaluating the extent to which the goals and subgoals are contained in current curricular offerings, and identifying needed curricular content and instructional strategies. The document is organized into the following 10 sections: (1) philosophy (definition of the nature of technology education and description of its relationship to society, the learner, and the school curriculum); (2) definition of technology education; (3) definition of technology literacy; (4) definition of technology education; (5) vision for technology education; (6) technology education learner outcomes; (7) technology education goals and subgoals; (8) technology education expectancies (statements that specify the expected behaviors within each subgoal); (9) illustrative objectives; and (10) curriculum development and assessment (how to develop and use goals, subgoals, and expectancies in the preparation of technology education scopes, sequences, and instructional units).
