Machine Shop. Post Secondary Curriculum Guide.
Watkins, James H.; And Others
This curriculum guide is designed to offer guidelines along with supporting resources and teaching ideas from which the local postsecondary instructor can extract a machine shop curriculum that meets local needs. Following an outline of the philosophy and goals underlying state and local vocational education programs in Georgia, the purpose and objectives of the guide are explained. Covered next are the nature and scope of machine shop-related occupations, employability skills that are necessary in such jobs, student exit points, and tasks performed in various job classifications. A sample curriculum structure and a course outline are provided. The bulk of the guide consists of a series of unit guides, each of which contains a task statement, a performance objective, instructional activities, suggested instructional materials, and evaluation criteria. Also included is a shop projects/duty areas cross reference matrix. The next two sections consist of listings of references and resources and student records. Suggestions are set forth for working with special needs students. Also supplied are facility layouts for a learning laboratory and a learning resource center. (MN)
