The Role of Industrial Arts in Career Education

The Role of Industrial Arts in Career Education

Date: December 1977
Creator: Pinnell, Charles C.
Description: This study seeks to provide a descriptive analysis of the role of industrial arts in career education. The criteria used as a basis for comparison of industrial arts and career education are (1) clarification of terminology, (2) historical trends in the development of both programs, (3) basic program philosophies, (4) curriculum content, (5) objectives and goals sought by each curriculum, and (6) legislation affecting industrial arts and career education. Career education is more extensive than industrial arts. Industrial arts cannot assume full responsibility for a comprehensive program of career education; however, industrial arts can be involved in activities which will help the student select a meaningful occupation related to industry.

Design and Construction of Auxiliary Equipment Used to Convert a Standard Woodworking Shaper for Use as a Finger-Jointing Machine

Date: August 1976
Creator: Kuenstler, David R.
Description: The problem was to design and construct the necessary equipment to cut and fasten short stock end to end using finger-joints. The study was divided into five chapters: I contained the introduction to the problem; II was concerned with the design and construction of the equipment; III detailed the operation of the equipment; IV contained the presentation of the data; and V covered the summary and findings. The study concluded that the equipment could be constructed inexpensively, and would perform a useful service. Also, a student using waste wood salvaged through use of this equipment could expect a smaller bill for materials than if he purchased new wood.

Noise in School Power Laboratories: Its Effects and Control

Noise in School Power Laboratories: Its Effects and Control

Date: August 1976
Creator: Schwab, David L.
Description: This study was made to find the effects of noise on the human body, to measure sound levels that exist in school power laboratories, and to design and evaluate the effectiveness of two noise control devices. An accurately calibrated testing device was used to measure sound levels in an attempt to determine if excessive noise exists in school power laboratories and to find the extent to which such noise can be reduced by shielding or enclosing the engine test area. It was found that noise has undesirable physical and psychological effects on the human organism. Sixty-two and one-half per cent of the engines tested registered sound levels above 90 dBA; even so, simple, inexpensive noise control devices do control the noise levels generated in the school power laboratories.

A Study of Safety in the Industrial Plastics Laboratories in the Secondary Schools of the Fort Worth Independent School District

Date: August 1976
Creator: Curtis, Ronald W.
Description: This study was conducted in order to determine what safety practices and procedures were employed in the industrial plastics laboratories in the secondary schools of the Fort Worth Independent School District. Data were obtained from literature in the field of safety education in industrial arts and from an information form mailed to the teachers of industrial plastics in the Fort Worth Independent School District. Hazardous conditions were found to exist in a majority of the laboratories due to a lack of sufficient floor space and work stations and the absence of proper guards on machines, proper storage facilities for flammable liquids, painted danger zones and nonskid surfaces on floors around machines.

Selecting Technical Competencies for Beginning Industrial Arts Woodworking Teachers in a Competency-Based eacher Education Program

Date: December 1975
Creator: Hay, William C.
Description: The problem was to identify the technical competencies necessary for beginning industrial arts woodworking teachers in Texas public secondary schools. Twenty-seven clusters of competencies were listed on a questionnaire sent to ninety-one supervisors of industrial arts in eighty-six Texas school districts requesting that these supervisors evaluate each cluster as "Essential," "Desirable," or "Unnecessary." Sixty-six questionnaires were returned (72.53 percent). A weighted rating scale was used to determine an overall evaluation for each cluster, with the result that twenty-five of the clusters were judged to be "Essential" and the two remaining clusters were judged to be "Desirable." It was concluded that the clusters judged to be "Essential" should be part of the required curriculum and that more training in tool maintenance be given.

The Suitability of Available Industrial Arts Textbooks for the Subject Area of Power Mechanics

The Suitability of Available Industrial Arts Textbooks for the Subject Area of Power Mechanics

Date: August 1975
Creator: Hocker, Joseph P.
Description: The problem of this study was to determine the suitability of available industrial arts textbooks for classroom use in the subject area of power mechanics. Criteria used in determining the subject matter content and format suitability of the textbooks were selected from previous research and applied to the textbooks by five jurors. Only one of the eight textbooks evaluated for subject matter content was found suitable for use in courses in power mechanics, while all of the textbooks were found suitable when evaluated for format. In order to conduct a comprehensive industrial arts power mechanics program, teachers must rely on supplementary materials in classroom instruction because of the low levels of subject matter suitability of the textbooks.

The Impact of Expanding Technical Knowledge on the Beginning Industrial Arts Teacher

The Impact of Expanding Technical Knowledge on the Beginning Industrial Arts Teacher

Date: August 1974
Creator: McCulley, Charles R.
Description: This study measures technical preparation and job demands among North Texas State University industrial arts graduates teaching in high schools. In addition to data from professional literature and the NTSU Bulletin, questionnaire mailings reveal that most graduates consider themselves qualified although recommending more semester hours of industrial arts for certification. They also affirm the practical value to the teacher of experience in industry. The study recommends narrowing the number of areas in industrial arts preparation and providing a more specialized teacher-training program with greater uniformity of semester hours.

Industrial Arts: A Medium for Economic Education

Date: August 1974
Creator: Leslie, Leo A.
Description: This study of the feasibility of introducing certain economic concepts into secondary school industrial arts curricula reveals that most Americans understand economics poorly. The study divides economic concepts into seven major categories with which the responsible adult should be familiar. The study examines trends toward involving economics in contemporary industrial arts projects and presents selected such activities with an economic emphasis. The study concludes by distinguishing between suitable and unsuitable economic concepts for integration into industrial arts curricula.

A Comparative Study of Three Epoxy Resins in the Industrial Arts Laboratory

A Comparative Study of Three Epoxy Resins in the Industrial Arts Laboratory

Date: May 1974
Creator: Yeatts, Fred Henry
Description: This study was made to determine the advantages of the use of epoxy resins in the industrial arts laboratory. The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of using epoxy resins as a wood adhesive. Data was gathered from texts, periodicals, and unpublished data. Tests were conducted using epoxy samples acquired from three epoxy manufacturers on three different woods and joints. The study discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using epoxy resins as a wood adhesive and the material and equipment necessary for the use of epoxy resins. Strength tests were performed on the joints adhered with epoxy and on joints adhered with white glue. A hand operated high tensile strength machine was used to conduct the tests. Epoxy Resins were found, in most cases, to give a more durable bond than white glue. Further studies should be made using epoxy resins as adhesives for metal, glass, plastic, and other materials used in the industrial arts laboratory.
