A Vocational Program for Recreational Vehicle Maintenance/Repair. A Report, 1977-78.
This report contains a secondary school curriculum guide designed to be used by vocational teachers in a one- or two-year recreational vehicle maintenance/repair program. In the preliminary pages, a description is given of the project that developed the curriculum, outlining its objectives and procedures in formulating the model interdisciplinary course. The curriculum is composed of the following components: (1) orientation to the trade; (2) the use of tools and equipment; (3) LPG systems and their assembly, testing, regulating, filling, and maintenance; (4) hitching and towing; (5) running gear, such as suspension systems, wheels and tires, and brakes; (6) electrical power; (7) plumbing; (8) construction, both supporting and exterior; (9) appliance repair, including refrigerators, air conditioning, stoves, ovens, and hot water heaters; (10) automotive systems, covering ignitions, fuel systems, engines, and cooling systems; (11) accessory installation of television antennas and air conditioners; (12) auxiliary power operation, maintenance, and installation; (13) pre-delivery service; and (14) management of sales and service areas. Each component consists of one or more units for which student objectives, classroom topics, and learning activities are listed. A cooperative education program with industry is suggested to complement the course work. Also included is a student progress chart to record a student's achievement of specific objectives. (This curriculum is to be tested for one year and then amended for publication in final form.) (ELG)
