Larson, Milton E.
This guide is designed for use by any person or groups of persons responsible for planning occupational programs in the machine trades. Its major purpose is to elicit the necessary information for the writing of educational specifications for facilities to house needed vocational programs in machine tool operation, machine shop, and tool and die making. The material is also designed to (1) assist planners in the formation of creative solutions to the housing of desired educational programs, (2) prevent important considerations from being overlooked in the facility planning process, and (3) encourage logical and systematic facility planning. The guide is organized into four major parts: (1) Introduction, a discussion of the major purpose, (2) The Instructional Program, in which important information is sought on the machine shop department basis program features, objectives, and the kinds of occupational programs which will be organized to implement them, (3) Distinct Types of Instructional Areas to be Provided, in which the actual spaces desired to house the vocational programs are described in detail, and (4) Annotated Bibliography, a list of detailed reference sources.
