Curriculum Guide for Electricity-Electronics.
Oregon State Board of Education, Salem. Div. of Community Colleges and Career Education.
Developed through a cooperative effort by industry and education, this curriculum guide outlines the basic skills and knowledge necessary for entry-level competencies in the broad field of electricity-electronics, or for entrance into an apprenticeship, post-high school, or university program. This guide is one of several developed for Oregon's new approach to secondary education called "The Oregon Way." The program is based on the assumptions that secondary schools should be preparatory for all students, and that a preparatory program ties the curriculum to the lives of students. As a result of analyzing over 350 separate occupations, five key clusters for electricity-electronics were derived: (1) Electronic Assembler, (2) Electrical Repairman, (3) Electrical Appliance Serviceman, (4) Electronics Technician, and (5) Electrician. Following the occupational and instructional data and curriculum suggestions, course outlines are provided for: (1) Circuitry Fundamentals, (2) Electromechanics, and (3) Communications. Required knowledge, behavioral objectives, and suggested learning activities are given for each unit. Information related to safety and maintenance, and a list of suggested equipment and facilities are appended. (GEB)
