These eight modules for an industrial orientation class were developed by a project to design an interdisciplinary program of basic skills training for disadvantaged students in a Construction Technology Program (see Note). The Drafting module overviews drafting career opportunities, job markets, salaries, educational requirements, and basic drafting skills. The Mechanics module covers mechanics' terminology, tools, work environments, and basic automobile maintenance procedures. In the Construction module the basic concepts, terminology, tools, materials, and methods used in wood frame construction are introduced. The Machine Shop module covers working with machine tools. The Welding module concerns safety, fundamental principles, equipment, and procedures. Topics in the Industrial Environments module include characteristics, tests and resources, women and work, sex stereotype information quiz, apprenticeship, discriminatory interview questions, and cognitive mapping. The Blueprint Reading module covers building and cartographic blueprints and symbolic language and terminology of blueprints. The Woodshop module covers equipment use, terminology, story rod, and using blueprints to build a woodshop project. Electrical concepts and terminology are introduced in the Electronics module which also provides practice using electronic components and equipment, making simple electrical repairs, making a circuit tester, and doing household wiring. (Related jobs are listed on the first page of each module. Hands-on projects are included in most modules.) (YLB)
