Cluster: Masonry. Course: Bricklaying. Research Project.

Twenty illustrated booklets, each representing one unit of learning, comprise the student's guide to an individualized course in bricklaying, in the occupational cluster of masonry. The guide was developed for a research project in a North Carolina high school, and is intended for use in conjunction with several textbooks and a series of slide/tape packages. The textbooks and tape script are not included in the document. The booklets range in length from 5 to 45 pages, each providing the unit's title, rationale, objectives, and the unit's task packages. There may be from one to nine task packages in each unit. A task package includes title, prerequisites, a rationale, a specific behavioral objective, learning activities, and learning practice. Learning activities are assignments in the textbooks and audiovisual packages; the student's attention is directed to specific content in an informal and sometimes humorous style. Learning practice is related to those assignments and takes the form of pencil and paper exercises or directions for hands-on experience to be supervised by the instructor at the student's request. All the task packages in a given unit must be completed successfully before the student can progress to another unit; the units are not necessarily sequential. (AJ)
