• Teacher Preparation

    The classroom or laboratory must provide a learning environment that provides for lecture and demonstration, small-group meetings, and research activities.

    Tools/Materials/Equipment

    Below is a list of supplies and equipment needed to teach this course, assuming a class of 25 students. Optional/additional supplies required for Enrichment Activities are indicated. Where possible and appropriate, merchants are listed that support ITEEA; however, materials may often be obtained from alternative and/or local sources.

    Additionally, these materials are based upon the lessons in the course and make no assumptions for classrooms with access to specialized equipment (e.g., fabrication equipment). If the student has access to specialized equipment, the teacher may wish to incorporate the use of it into the lessons, and additional supplies may be necessary (as well as safety procedures).

    Laboratory-Classroom Safety and Conduct

    Note: Safety is of paramount importance to every classroom. While this Guide contains some general safety guidelines, it does not address the specific tools, equipment, and working spaces found in any specific classroom. Teachers must provide comprehensive safety guidelines to students based upon individual classrooms.

    1. Students use tools and equipment safely, maintaining a safety level for themselves and others in the laboratory-classroom.
    2. Students demonstrate respect and courtesy for the ideas expressed by others in the class.
    3. Students show respect and appreciation for the efforts of others.
