Graphic Communications. Career Education Guide.
Dependents Schools (DOD), Washington, DC. European Area.
The curriculum guide is designed to provide students with realistic training in graphic communications theory and practice within the secondary educational framework and to prepare them for entry into an occupation or continuing postsecondary education. The program modules outlined in the guide have been grouped into four areas: printing, photography, design and detailing, and office reproduction. A schematic laboratory layout shows key relationships of various activity zones in the lab and, to aid in the separation of these into discrete units, a functional zone schematic has also been included. Each unit plan includes a description of the topic, time required, behavioral objectives, module outline, curriculum materials list, laboratory activities, and materials needed. The following topics are presented: artwork; image assembly; photo-conversion; image carrier preparation; image transfer (offset); lithographic platemaking; color separation; finishing procedures; line, halftone, and still photography; cinematography; beginning, intermediate, and advanced drafting; fluid duplicating; duplicator operation; master imaging; office artwork preparation; stencil typing and imaging; mimeograph operation 1 and 2; decision making; and image transfer (letterpress).
