For the Teacher and by the Teacher: Development of Exemplar Technology Learning Activities in Taiwan.
Lee, Lung-Sheng Steven
In Taiwan, revised curriculum standards for junior and senior high school technology education were developed to take effect in the 1997 and 1998 school years. A project was undertaken to develop a set of exemplar technology learning activities (TLAs) to assist teachers in developing their school-based course of study for the living technology (LT) program; 24 junior high and 9 senior high exemplar TLAs were completed. The curriculum was based on these basic characteristics of a technology education curriculum: negotiation, authenticity, focus, responsiveness, logistics, and expense. The planning team consisted of four industrial arts teachers, two from junior high schools and two from senior high schools. The main procedures were TLA development; TLA tryouts, assessment, and revision; consultant review of TLAs; and final revisions. The finalized TLAs were published in two volumes for junior high and senior high. Each volume contained a preface, list of developers, table of contents, directions, units, and glossary. Each unit consisted of a title, overview, and TLAs (two in each junior high unit and one in each senior high unit). Components of each TLA were as follows: title, teaching hours, grader, performance objectives, introduction, equipment and supplies, activity procedures, evaluation, instructional resources, other suggestions, references, and appendix. (Unit titles are listed. Contains 11 references. (YLB)
