7 Middle School Technology Education Rationale for Curriculum The goal of technology education is technological literacy for all students. Technology is about doing and developing solutions to real-world problems or products that address human needs and desires. Technology education provides a vital link to the math/science/ technology triangle to assist with understanding living and working in our advanced technology-driven Information Age. Its interdisciplinary nature and process orientation also helps students to comprehend and apply these concepts in the natural sciences, mathematics, social sciences and humanities. Technology consists of invention, innovations and other creative, engineeringlike activities for producing physical objects and performing technical services through the application of organized knowledge and problem solving techniques. Industrial Technology focuses on a systems approach to develop technological literacy. The systems in material processing, energy and power, and communication provide broad content areas of study. A holistic approach is employed in technology education. Each student is actively involved in activities that develop knowledge, skills and attitudes regarding industry and technology. Emphasis is given to nurturing leadership, communication, social interaction, problem-solving and manipulative skills. Personal and social growth is fostered through interaction with other students in the technology laboratory. The technological method of problem solving is experienced by identifying a problem, collecting and analyzing data, generating alternatives, synthesizing a design or plan, developing a proposed product or service, and evaluating the process and results. Throughout this educational process, students are taught to explore their options and to make wise consumer, citizen, and career decisions. The primary objective of middle school industrial technology is to help students become aware of and explore technology. To be meaningful and effective, the study of the technological world requires an activity-based curriculum that includes the design, development and evaluation of solutions to technological problems. The Missouri Technology Education Goals are: 1. Employ a systematically developed technology knowledge base, research, critical thinking, problemsolving, innovation and creativity in solving technological problems. 2. Use, develop and design the concepts, systems, tools, machines, processes and technological knowledge bases of Energy, Power and Transportation, Communications, and Materials and Processing Technology. 3. Make personal sense of technology and its trends in preparation for integrated and lifelong learning. 4. Engender leadership, teamwork, and pride in quality when engaging in technological activities. 5. Transfer and apply technological knowledge to school, career and societal settings. Each grade level will foster the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills, teamwork and safe, appropriate use of technology. Gateway to Technology (Sixth Grade course) will focus on the knowledge and use of technology and how it affects the world. Robotics and Modeling (Seventh Grade course) will focus on the basic components of automated, computer-controlled machines, and 3D modeling. Multi Media Technology and Digital Circuitry (Eighth Grade course) will emphasize the basics of multimedia technology, including flight simulation, computer animation, digital editing, and web design. Through hands on activities the students explore how technology uses electricity. 7

8 Middle School Technology Education Rationale for Curriculum (cont.) Materials processing classes align their Core Conceptual Objectives around five major strands of Manufacturing Processes, as identified by the Technology Education Association. Each grade level continues to build and refine skills in all of the five strands. These strands include lab safety, use of tools and machines, measurements, choice of materials, measurements, and project design. The particular skills and talents that each student brings to the class establish the degree of increasing complexity and design for the proposed projects. The emphasis in Exploring Materials Processes (Sixth Grade course) is on understanding and exploring new skills with tools, and learning properties of new materials relevant to the tools identified. The emphasis in Investigating Materials Processing (Seventh Grade course) is focusing these skills as a systemic, sequential approach to solving problems, and to accomplishing the final products. The emphasis in Materials Processing (Eighth Grade course) is on solving real life problems and realizing the impact of choices on final products and solutions while demonstrating proficiency, safety and skill with tools, technology and materials. Standards for assessing product quality, cooperation with others and problem-solving skills remain constant while expectations for proficiency of these skills increase with each grade level and extent of participation in this program. Measurement and accuracy establish standards for the procedures and reinforce similar processes in science classes. Instructional approaches in industrial technology typically include three approaches, or an integration of the three. These approaches include the project approach, the design-under-constraints approach and the modular technology approach. This pedagogy allows for the differentiation and acceleration of students at every level of the industrial technology curriculum. This approach matches extremely well with the middle school philosophy and widely accepted constructivist learning theory, and addresses all three domains of learning: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor (Sanders, 1994). These instructional approaches incorporate authentic assessment. Evaluation is based on products developed and processes used along the way, rather than on paper and pencil tests. Assessments are rarely about the actual appearance of the artifact, but rather what the constructed solution reveals about the student s systemic work in solving the problem. This pedagogy aligns with the recommendation of the National Middle School Association s (hereafter abbreviated, NMSA) to phase out lecturing, rote learning, drill and practice, and the dominance of textbooks and worksheets. Students are almost always actively engaged with their subject matter. Textbooks accompanying the curriculum are used to facilitate work in the labs, not as a primary means of instruction. To insure the maximum application of differentiation and acceleration of Rockwood students, the Middle School Industrial Technology curriculum is designed along the modular technology approach as the primary instructional pedagogy with occasional use of alternative approaches.

9 Middle School Technology Education Scope and Sequence Middle school students may enter and exit the Industrial Technology program at any grade level. Students may be enrolled in these courses for one, two or all three years. Coupled with the range of student abilities and interests, these various combinations elicit a curriculum framework, which must tailor an individual program to meet the needs of each student. Because there is no prerequisite for these courses, facilitating activities for each of the major strands have been organized based on abstractness, open-endedness, complexity and difficulty of tasks involved. All facilitating activities are available at each grade level to allow for students entering the courses at many levels. The correct placement of students within the hierarchy of tasks is accomplished through pre-assessment strategies and teacher observations. Flexible grouping of students is also used to meet individual needs. Within the three-year framework is a comprehensive direction given for student achievement in industrial technology, focused on key processes and skills. Throughout the program, assessments include measures of the students creative and critical thinking skills, teamwork and problem-solving skills, documentation of the technological use, and the quality of the technology products produced. These skills and processes are valued in subsequent educational coursework and businesses. Gateway to Technology (Sixth Grade course) will focus on the knowledge and use of technology and how it affects the world. Robotics and Modeling (Seventh Grade course) will focus on the basic components of automated, computer-controlled machines, and 3D modeling. Multi Media Technology and Digital Circuitry (Eighth Grade course) will emphasize the basics of multimedia technology, including flight simulation, computer animation, digital editing, and web design. Through hands on activities the students explore how technology uses electricity. The Middle School Industrial Technology program is grounded in the precepts and major strands of the Technology Education Associations. These are the same precepts and strands used as the basis for the curriculum developed at the high school level. This curriculum is closely aligned with the Show-Me Standards of Missouri, discovery learning, and the constructivistic approach to learning in the middle school. Rockwood Middle School Industrial Technology curriculum lays the foundation for the seamless curriculum, preparing students for High School Industrial Technology courses, several of which are part of the articulation agreements for related course work at area colleges. 9

10 Middle School Technology Education Document Guidelines The Middle School Industrial Technology curriculum document specifically outlines the Core Conceptual Objectives (hereafter abbreviated CCO) and the necessary skills to be taught at each grade level. Supporting content and skills for each CCO are considered essential. These content and skills lay the foundation for all future learning. These include reading, writing, math, problem solving, working with others, analytical skills, and communicating effectively. There are also content and skills which are vital to future learning and are specific to each content area. These include specific content and skills listed by grade level/course, within scope and sequence, and those critical to mastery of the particular course. Multiple Facilitating Activities (hereafter abbreviated FA) are listed in the document as suggested tasks for teaching each objective. Additional resources are furnished to enhance instruction and integrate the disciples. Although FAs are repeated from one grade to the next, this is in accordance to the Scope and Sequence and Differentiation Strategies as explained earlier. While each FA addresses some, if not all, components of the CCO, not all of the FAs can possibly be completed within the timeframes for the course. Having the complete range of FAs thus allows teachers to more precisely tailor, or differentiate, instruction for each student. All FAs are designated according to the levels of Bloom s Taxonomy of Skill Development (see Appendix A). Additional resources are also included to provide teachers with variety of instructional venues to achieve the CCOs for any given student population. Application Level Assessments (hereafter abbreviated ALA) are used to evaluate student learning. These are supplied along with corresponding scoring guides. All ALAs are designed on application or higher levels of Bloom s Taxonomy of Skill Development. Scoring guides are developed to establish course expectations, to provide precise feedback, and to define strengths and areas for improvement for students. This document is cross-referenced to the guidelines set forth by the Missouri Show-Me Standards, the Missouri International Technology Education Association, National Technology Standards, National Science Standards, and National Math Standards. This document is a dynamic document that will be reviewed and revised annually. Essential to the review process is teacher feedback. Teachers are encouraged to keep records of observations, comments, suggestions, additions and deletions for the document. Throughout the school year, teachers should also be collecting anchor papers for ALAs to be used in the refining of the scoring guides and the development of consistency of scoring. 10

12 Middle School Technology Education Statement of Differentiation and Acceleration The technology curriculum differentiates and accelerates curriculum and instruction in the following ways: 1. Differentiated Lessons Technology uses appropriate methods of instructional delivery for accelerated learning such as differentiation in content and level of learning material. The content within each level is differentiated and allows for acceleration. 2. Instructional Methods Technology differentiates instruction by using various methods of instruction delivery including direct instruction, non-direct instruction, simulation, advanced organizers, cooperative learning, and the Hunter Method. Information is presented through a multi-sensory approach (written, verbal, computer generated, or hands-on). 3. Differentiated Materials and Products Technology differentiates the materials used and products required by students. Differentiated tests are given in several forms, including essay, short answer/listing, completion, computation/problem solving, matching, or multiple choice. Students complete group or individual projects. Differentiation of products is achieved by allowing students to demonstrate and apply mastery of concepts orally, written, by diagrams, with graphics, through presentations, etc. Differentiation is achieved by varying length, complexity of assignment, or allotted time. 4. Effectiveness of Differentiated Lessons Student achievement is monitored through pre-tests, mastery of current level concepts, teacher observations, parent and/or student input, interest and learning style inventories, and counselor and/or grade level administrators input. Flexible grouping of students is also employed to meet individual needs and cooperative learning. 5. Communication of Differentiation/Acceleration Students are encouraged to realize their potential through communication of differentiation/acceleration possibilities through teacher conversations, parent/teacher conferences, progress reports, report cards, school newsletters, curriculum nights, and web pages. Communication to parents is completed, either in writing or verbally, a minimum of a quarterly basis. 6. Identifying Student Needs Student needs for acceleration are identified by assessing student abilities through pre-testing, mastery of current level concepts, teacher observations, parent and/or student input, interest and learning style inventories, and counselor and/or grade level administrators input. Instructional needs are identified and appropriate curricular and instructional methods implemented. 7. Improvement Recommendations Staff act upon recommendations for improvement in a timely manner. Staff dialogue at designated times throughout the year, regarding best practices for implementation of the acceleration policy. 12

13 Middle School Technology Education Equity Statement The Rockwood School District believes that it is the right of every student to receive equal opportunities in all educational programs and activities conducted by the district. It is the policy of the Board to accord equal considerations and impartial treatment regardless of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, socioeconomic status, sex, age or disability. In keeping with this policy, the district strives to ensure equitable programs, course offerings, services, facilities, and educational materials. In addition, the district promotes equal opportunities for educational development by equipping all students with technology, research/information processing, and job-preparedness skills. In order to promote equity, the Rockwood Department of Curriculum and School Leadership use the following codes* to identify equity and readiness in all curriculum documents: GE= Gender Equity RE= Racial/ Ethnic Equity D= Disability Equity T= Technology Skills R= Research/ Information Processing W= Workplace/ Job Preparedness A resource selection committee for each content area will evaluate educational material based on specific criteria including equity and readiness. The criteria checklist for this curriculum adoption is included in the Appendix. *Codes in this document will appear in the Facilitating Activities. 13
