The first part of the guide is an introduction that defines the academic standards, explains how and why they were developed, and suggests ways teachers can use the standards, relate them to all students, and apply them across the curriculum. It is followed by an overview of technology education and the standards for the following topics: nature of technology, systems, human ingenuity, and the impact of technology. Standards for each topic are organized into the skills and knowledge students should be able to demonstrate by the end of grades 4, 8, and 12. A glossary defines 10 terms. (KC)
