The purpose of this study is an attempt to: (1) help the instructor make better classroom presentations; (2) give an idea of how mechanisms may be used to assist the demonstration; (3) give, in part, an idea on what to demonstrate, and how it should be accomplished; (4) suggest that crafts be introduced more into our junior high school industrial arts program; (5) show that this work can be used to bring out the abilities of the students; and (6) to help improve the administrative aspect of the Industrial Arts program.

The writer hopes that the data presented in this study will be of value to the students, supervisors, administrators, and teachers in that it will aid them in preparing children to play their part creditably in their adult years. It is also intended to give the average individual not particularly interested in industrial arts a knowledge of the subject, based upon principles that have survived for hundred of years in industrial arts monuments and history. The teacher, pupil, or layman should use his knowledge of the subjects as a basis for criticism or appreciation of the field of the industrial arts.

The study was limited to the investigator's experiences as a researcher. It was further limited to a review of literature related to Junior High School Industrial Arts Programs. Specifically, it was intended to be of service to the community and to the individual.
