Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Coll. of Agriculture and Natural Resources Education Inst.
This task-based curriculum guide is intended to help secondary teachers provide relevant training for an entry-level job in mechanical drafting. Introductory materials include background information on trade and industrial education and program goals and safety information. Descriptions follow of the construction trades program, vocational cooperative education, work experience/unpaid work experience, work experience and career exploration programs, and vocational work study. This job information is then provided: job titles and a task inventory for mechanical drafting. Tasks are grouped under these 20 duties: preparation, basic drawing, geometric construction, pictorial drawing, orthographic projection, dimensioning, sectional views, auxiliary views, thread and fastening techniques, shop processes, job entry skills, casting drawing, detailing drawing, assembly drawing, descriptive geometry skills, body drafting, cam and gear layout, technical illustrating, electronic drawing, and employability skills. Duty tabs comprise the largest portion of the curriculum guide. Each task in the listing is presented in a one-page format that provides this information: duty, task, achievement indicators, criteria, tools and equipment, and resources. Other components of the curriculum guide include a tool and equipment list, a student achievement record, a class achievement record, a glossary of vocational terms, and a resource list. (YLB)
