Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
This individualized, self-paced course for independent study in water drainage was adapted from military curriculum materials for use in vocational education. The course provides basic information for the design of simple drainage structures for roads and airfields. Some job skills included are designing and constructing ditches and culverts; designing subsurface drainage facilities; designing and using ponding areas; and designing check dams and drop inlets. The course consists of five lessons, each containing a lesson objective, readings, and review exercises. The course can be used as a sub-unit in environmental control, construction, or some types of agriculture courses. Each lesson has an objective, a coded text, exercises, and answers keyed to the text for student self-evaluation. A course examination of 50 multiple-choice questions is provided, but no answers are available. Supplementary charts and graphs are provided. (KC)
