Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This investigator teaches a course in junior high industrial arts in which students are exposed to a number of different adhesives. The text used in the industrial arts course classifies the types of adhesives and gives the procedure for using each one, but does not identify the properties of the adhesive or the safety knowledge essential for using them. The several kinds of adhesives used in this course have special properties which determine how and when to use them. To supplement the text and to provide more hands-on activity, a unit could be developed which would help students determine why some adhesives are more practical than others for certain job applications. Such a unit would give students the opportunity to perform practical testing and gain technical information in this field.
