Metric Measurement Workshop for Vocational Facilitators. Final Report.
Lehigh County Area Vocational-Technical School, Schnecksville, PA.
A workshop was conducted to train local representatives from area vocational-technical schools in Pennsylvania to implement the metric materials developed by the Center for Vocational Education at The Ohio State University. As a result of the workshop, the local representatives were to become part of the dissemination process by supporting other teachers through consultations or conducting local workshops. Participants developed lesson plans to incorporate instruction in metric measurement at the laboratory/shop level to assist local instructors. As a result of participant evaluation it was concluded that the participants exhibited increased awareness of the metric system, developed hands-on competencies in using metric tools, equipment and devices for measurement, and developed skills in the use of conversion tables and for slide rules. (A major portion of the document is comprised of attachments, including the workshop agenda, a handout describing the metric system, instructional packets [learning activities], metric units-common and uncommon, use of metric slide rule, lesson plan samples, metric workshop evaluation, and metric measurement test.)
