Individual instructors can add or delete jobs or lessons to suit their particular teaching situations. Contents include the course philosophy, listing of course objectives and activities to achieve them, plan of instructional practice, listing of appliance repair reference materials, bibliography, listing of resources for visual aids, and course outline. These seven units are included: orientation, basic electricity, basic shop tools, laundry equipment, kitchen equipment, and refrigeration. Job sheets, operation sheets, information sheets, and assignment sheets are provided. Job sheets (student practice in developing skill competencies) define materials and tools needed, competence procedures/steps cross-indexed to related operation sheet(s), and method of evaluation. Operation sheets, supplementing job sheets and indicating how to perform skill competency operation necessary to complete assigned jobs, include competency, objective, and competence-procedures/steps. Information sheets supplement job sheets and provide the student with information necessary for completing the assigned jobs with the highest possible degree of understanding. Sample assignment sheets provide the student with mental activities necessary to learn the "knowing" that accompanies the "doing" of a trade. (YLB)
