IDENTIFICATION OF TASK AND KNOWLEDGE CLUSTERS ASSOCIATED WITH PERFORMANCE OF MAJOR TYPES OF BUILDING TRADES WORK, REPORT NUMBER 7.
BAKAMIS, WILLIAM A.; AND OTHERS
CLUSTERS OF KNOWLEDGES WIDELY USEFUL TO BUILDING TRADES WORKERS WERE IDENTIFIED. BY QUESTIONNAIRES AND INTERVIEWS, UP-TO-DATE FACTS WERE OBTAINED REGARDING MAJOR TYPES OF TASKS PERFORMED BY A REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLE (229) OF BRICK LAYERS, CARPENTERS, CEMENT FINISHERS, ELECTRICIANS, IRON WORKERS, AND HEATING WORKERS. ON THE BASIS OF THIS INFORMATION, A JURY COMPRISED OF VOCATIONAL TEACHERS, A SCIENTIST, A MATHEMATICIAN, A LANGUAGE ARTS SPECIALIST, AND BUILDING TRADE EMPLOYEES AND SUPERVISORS IDENTIFIED KNOWLEDGES ASSOCIATED WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF MAJOR TASKS. CLUSTERS OF WIDELY USEFUL MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE, AND COMMUNICATION KNOWLEDGES WERE THEN DEFINED. THE AUTHORS ASSUMED THAT ACQUISITION OF SUCH KNOWLEDGES ALONG WITH REQUISITE SKILLS WOULD HELP STUDENTS SUCCEED IN BUILDING TRADE ENTRY JOBS AND SERVE AS BASES FOR RETRAINING, OCCUPATIONAL MOBILITY, AND CAREER-LONG ADVANCEMENT. THIS VOLUME REPRESENTS PART 7 OF THE 13-PART FINAL REPORT ON THE VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT OF WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY. RELATED VOLUMES ARE ED 010 652 THROUGH ED 010 664. (JH)
