The guide is an outline of training experiences designed to lead a student to at least entry-level job proficiency in the metal trades within the construction industry. Teaching units cover welding, sheet metal, plumbing, pipefitting, air conditioning and heating, millwrighting, and industrial mechanics. Each unit has several overall objectives which are divided into subobjectives, stated in behavioral terms. Suggested activities are listed for each subobjective. Lists of texts and academic related theory information are provided for each overall objective. A four-step lesson plan procedure is described consisting of preparation of the lesson, presentation, application of student performance, and performance test. A sample lesson plan using these steps is appended. The accompanying student resource manual is intended to serve as a supplemental text. For each topic covered in the teaching units there is a corresponding section in the manual providing: (1) basic information necessary to performing the suggested activities, (2) description of job activities, (3) discussion of materials and processes used, (4) a glossary, and (5) appended list of information sources.
