Vocational Carpentry Curriculum Guide.
Virginia Polytechnic Inst. and State Univ., Blacksburg. Dept. of Education.; Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond. Div. of Vocational Education.
The carpentry curriculum guide was developed as a basic guide to be used by instructors in formulating their own courses of study. The material is designed for use in vocational carpentry classes at grade levels 10, 11, and 12. Planned as a two-year sequence, it incorporates 1080 class hours of instruction and emphasizes light or residential type construction. A statement on vocational education philosophy, an outline of objectives, a job description, and a suggested block time schedule are followed by 11 blocks of instruction: orientation, hand and portable power tools, foundation and forms, floor and wall framing, roof framing, roof covering, exterior wall finishes and trim, insulation and interior wall and ceiling finishes, interior trim, stair building, and pre-employment. Instructional blocks are organized under the headings of units of instruction, information, skill-development activities, and instructional aids. Appendixes (which provide unit guide examples for block two; lists of suggested films, filmstrips, slides, transparencies, film loops, books, construction illustrations; pamphlets, handout material, and wall charts; safety rules; and a suggested tool list) comprise nearly two-thirds of the guide.
