This study, "A Guide to Teaching Materials for Industrial Arts," was prompted by the fact that the writer is concerned with teaching aids available to the shop teacher in the field. Several years teaching has brought the writer face to face with the problem of supplementary teaching materials. Knowing that complete listings of teaching aids for the teacher are not available, the writer determined to make available such a listing which would be most beneficial to the shop teachers.

The problem is fourfold:

  1. To catalogue industrial arts teaching aids.
  2. To determine the extent of the educational departments in the industrial firms.
  3. To determine the free and low cost teaching aids made available for the industrial arts teacher.
  4. To educate the teacher and the pupil as to the materials available and thus educate them to better buying.
