This publication is a curriculum guide for conducting courses in power and transportation technology, and was prepared as a result of a Summer 1972 workshop. The courses suggested herein are recommended for the ninth grade level. Keeping in mind the different amount of time available in different institutions for such courses, the publication outlines two courses, one of which runs for a semester (90 hours) and the other for one year (180 hours). Course outlines are provided for both of these programs. In each section, brief outlines are given first, arranged according to topics and subtopics. Examples are given for organizing the materials on these brief outlines, and the manner in which these should be taught in classrooms. Laboratory activities with explanations are suggested as motivational techniques. A separate and detailed section is included providing information about jobs available. For each professional, skilled and unskilled job, minimum educational qualifications, job descriptions and other related information are provided. Information is also provided for equipment purchase and workshop lay-out plans. (PS)
