Metals Cluster Brief. Vocational Education in Oregon.
This guide sets forth minimum approval criteria for metals occupational clusters training programs in Oregon. The information in the guide is intended for use by district-level curriculum planners, teachers, regional coordinators, or state education department staff involved with new program development or revisions of existing programs. The guide outlines the instructional content of metals trades programs (such as welder, machinist, auto body repairer) in terms of program descriptions, areas for training, program goals, course/content goals, and sample performance objectives. Course goals are listed under such headings as safety, communication, mathematics, science, cutting, finishing, human relations, and career guidance. Course titles and descriptions are also included. A section on organizational options is designed to illustrate a few of the many ways to deliver the minimum instructional content required for an approved vocational cluster program. Content is illustrated by course titles for the instructional levels to recognize that students from different grades may enroll in one or more levels of a program. (KC)
