O'Brien, Ralph D.
The first six instructional blocks in automotive mechanics, the lessons and supportive information in the document provide a guide for teachers in planning an instructional program in the basic theory and practice of a beginning course at the secondary and post-secondary level. The material, as organized, is a suggested sequence of instruction within each block. Each lesson is stated in terms of a specific teaching objective, teaching aids, references, and an outline of information. Upon completion of the 20 lessons in the introductory block, students will be able to: (1) examine the field of occupations within the mechanic service industry, (2) recognize the scope of the automotive industry as a major socio-economic factor in our lives, (3) plan a tentative schedule of study, based on the available curriculum, (4) function within the established school and program organization, and (5) define and perform essential services classified as general vehicle maintenance. Included with the course outline are transparency masters and a reference guide listing related books, texts, and other publications. (MW)
