It seems that lexicon in the education industry is similar to the latest trends in the fashion industry. The difference is that even in fashion, we can recognize styles as timeless and use former styles for inspiration. In education, well....that's another type of post.
These thoughts were prompted by a comment on one of my instagram followers from Canada who also teaches 'shop' classes:

So, fine, forget the term Industrial Arts even. I'll take a page from a veteran teacher's book and simply say: "What do I teach, you ask...?"
