As an important element of general education, industrial arts must engage in those human activities which contribute to the development of skills and habits of mind which will be the instruments of continuous change and growth on the part of the individual. The University of Maryland concept of industrial arts programs relates to this position by emphasizing the process of how the individual arrives at his answers. Industrial arts as a curriculum is defined as those phases of general education which deal with the organization, materials, occupations, processes, products, and problems of industry. The broad areas identified are those which must be taught in a realistic and meaningful way. During the past 10 years, the group project and the line production technIQues of teaching have been tested in in-depth studies of these areas. A second emphasis of the University of Maryland concept is on developing people instead of things. Methodology must be focused on what the individual does and, more specifically, on how he accomplishes what he does. Industrial arts has great potential for integrating subject matter in life-like situations and for showing the contributions of technology to evolving civilizations. Teachers must be educated to design learning experiences and to use experimental processes to implement this broad and functional approach to industrial arts. A junior high school program utilizing these concepts is in use in Montgomery county, Maryland, schools and is being developed in fairfax county, Virginia. A diagram of the program is included. A related document is vt 002 956. (em)
