Curriculum Guide for Metals.
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 metals, 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 1,023 separate occupations, five key occupational clusters for metals were derived: (1) Foundry Worker, (2) Sheet Metal Worker, (3) Auto Body Repairman, (4) Welder, and (5) Machinist. Following some occupational and instructional data and curriculum suggestions, course outlines are provided for: (1) Hot Metals, (2) Machine Processes, (3) Metal Fabrication, and (4) Communication. Required knowledge and skills, behavioral objectives, and suggested learning activities are given for each unit. Information dated to safety and maintenance, and a list of related tools, equipment, and furnishings are appended. (GEB)
