Texas Education Agency, Austin. Dept. of Occupational Education and Technology.
The guide is an outline of training experiences designed to lead a student to at least entry-level job proficiency in the masonry trades within the construction industry. Teaching units cover concrete working, brick and block layering, plastering, and tile and terrazzo working. 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. Topics included correspond with those in the teaching units, providing background information necessary for performing the suggested activities. Discussion of materials used, processes, safety considerations, job opportunities, and continued education is included. The manual also contains a three-page glossary and an appended list of information sources. (Author/MS)
