The curriculum guide focuses on the building trades at the secondary level of education and industrial arts. It addresses the subject in behavioral terms, as prominent components of the career education concept. Presenting five skill modules, painting, carpentry, brick/stonemasonry, electrical, and plumbing/pipefitting, 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, the transitional objectives are designed to break the major task into subtasks at four specific competency levels: (1) entry level, only cursory knowledge of the task, (2) successful performance with direct supervision, (3) successful performance with routine supervision, and (4) independent performance at the journeyman level. Concepts treated in the five modules include safety practices and the maintenance and operation of tools and equipment. Specific skills related to each trade are provided, emphasizing applications to residential construction and local building codes. Test items for each competency level are provided, evaluative criteria suggested, and occupational information offered. A seven-page bibliography is appended. (MW)
