Westinghouse Learning Corp., New York, NY.
The curriculum guide deals with automotive repair skills at the secondary level of vocational education and industrial arts. It addresses the subject in behavioral terms, as prominent components of the career education concept. Presenting four skill modules, auto body repair, gas engine repair, service, and diesel engine mechanics, the objectives presented are designed to be compatible with individualized systems and/or application to small and large group use. Terminal and transitional objectives are presented at four specific competency levels: (1) entry level abilities, (2) supervised performance, (3) successful performance with routine supervision, and (4) independent performance at the journeyman level. Concepts treated include safety practices, the maintenance and operation of tools and equipment; auto body repair skills include welding procedures, spray painting, straightening, and frame aligning. Gas engine repair skills include theory of engine components and service techniques. Automotive service skills focus on the tune up, transmission, front end, and brakes. The diesel engine mechanic module deals with basic principles, tear-down and assembly procedures, and testing techniques. Test items, evaluative criteria, and occupational information are included. A seven-page bibliography is appended. (MW)
