Illinois Manufacturing Technology Curriculum.
Cliffe, Roger; And Others
This manufacturing technology curriculum involves students in learning problem-solving, communication, team building, quality control, safety, math, science, and technical skills. The document begins with a section on implementation, which gives background information on the purposes and development of the curriculum, explains its rationale, describes strategies for its implementation, and provides special hints for teachers. The curriculum itself consists of eight units that include information related to various phases of manufacturing: measurement; print interpretation; layout and inspection; occupational safety and health; business economics; product and process control; skills marketing, with worksheets; and quality in manufacturing. Each unit is composed of activities that increase student involvement and interest through teamwork strategies and lab exercises. The curriculum may be used as a complete course of study or individual units may be incorporated into an existing course. Each unit is prefaced with a table of contents, a reference sheet for figures, and a listing of the unit goals. Each activity is organized into 12 parts: activity description; rationale; outcomes; materials and resources; safe practices; instructional strategy; integrative skills; information sheet; learning check; student activity sheet; alternative strategies; and the learning performance check. An appendix contains the Illinois State Learning Outcomes Analysis. (NLA)
