Bonser and Mossman define industrial arts as ". . . a study of the changes made by man in the forms of materials to increase their values, and of the problems of life related to these changes" (Bonser & Mossman, 1923). Mossman's Philosophy looked at industrial arts as a separate area of study from math, science, history, and geography; one that should be integrated with the total school curriculum. The authors paved the way for technical education. Bonser defines industrial arts as a study of the changes made by man in natural materials to increase their value in meeting needs for material supplies-food, clothing, shelter, etc. and the effects upon individual and social life by the means used to make these changes. (Foster, 1995). Lois Coffey Mossman (1877 - 1944) and Frederick Gordon Bonser (1875 - 1931) were Elementary school teachers. (Foster, 1995) (Flowers, 2010) - excerpted from Prezi.com.
