Industrial Technology Department Writing Statement
The ability to communicate through the written work is a vital skill set needed for success. This is evident in numerous occupations within the industry. Engineers and manufacturers record specific instructions and procedures on how to assemble and build automobiles, bridges and skyscrapers. The instructors within the industrial technology department at Spearfish High School use writing activities to help guide the students through the planning process of many projects. Students write a technical step by step operational guide for tools used within the lab and sequential plan of procedures for projects before construction begins. It is through these and other activities we hope to prepare our students for an ever changing technical world.
