Woodworking Guide for Visually Handicapped Students. A Five County Vocational Skills Training Program for the Blind.
Presented is an industrial arts curriculum guide for woodworking which developed out of a 3 year program designed to meet the unmet vocational education needs of visually impaired students enrolled in junior high, secondary, and community colleges in a five county region of California, and to provide inservice training to regular vocational education teachers and counselors working with blind students. Four chapters introduce travel techniques used in the shop, orientation to the shop, measuring devices, and hand tools, respectively. Eight chapters present the principal machines found in school workshops in terms of description, safety, adaptations, orientation, exceptions, operation, maintenance, and references. Considered are the circular saw, the drill press, the radial arm saw, the wood lathe, sanders, band saw and scroll saw, the planer and joiner, and electric hand tools. Two final chapters instruct in sanding the project and finishing the project. For other program documents see EC 051 131 through EC 051 133. (DB)
