Graphic Communications. Curriculum Guide.
North Dakota State Board for Vocational Education, Bismarck.
This guide provides the basic foundation to develop a one-semester course based on the cluster concept, graphic communications. One of a set of six guides for an industrial arts curriculum at the junior high school level, it suggests exploratory experiences designed to (1) develop an awareness and understanding of the drafting and graphic arts industries, and (2) develop an insight into economic, social, and recreational aspects of visual communications in a changing society. Following an introduction covering rationale, cluster outlines and objectives, and cluster taxonomic structure, nine units are presented: communications, freehand, instruments, design, image generation, preproduction, production, bindery, and careers. Each unit includes unit objectives, student competencies and related student activities, and where applicable, illustrations and diagrams. A bibliography of films and other materials, and a listing of resources in graphic communications are appended. (SH)
