Auto Body. Instructional System Development Model for Vermont Area Vocational Centers.
The model curriculum guide was developed to teach auto body repair in secondary schools in Vermont. From a needs assessment of the occupational opportunities in automotive services in the state, a group of selected occupations were analyzed for skill content and translated into the curriculum content. The guide consists of 14 units, each with a student/instructor curriculum outline providing: a concept statement, behavioral objective, learning activities, suggested resources, suggested evaluation techniques, unit objective, lesson/unit plan, and reference list. Among the topics covered in the units are: sheet metal repair, welding, body filling, panel replacement, refinishing, body-frame correlation, estimating, upholstery and trim, glass service, body-electrical, front suspension system, cooling system, and brake system. Appended to the guide are a bibliography, list of possible resources, discussion of norm and criterion tests with samples, and explanation of the instructional forms. Sample welding unit materials and glossaries of the teaching and evaluation methods referred to in the lessons are also appended. (NJ)
