Section I: Basic Electricity. Syllabus in Trade Electricity-Electronics.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Occupational and Career Curriculum Development.
This section describes the first of a three part curriculum in trade electricity-electronics (each part is described in a separate volume). It presents a unit of 6 to 10 weeks duration which develops only those competencies necessary to all electricity or electronics employment. A flow chart indicates how an individual student's program can be arranged within, or across, the three curriculum areas. This section is divided into eight units: Orientation, Electrons as Charge Carriers, Circuit Component Identification, Basic Laws; Circuit Concepts, Magnetism, Batteries, Introduction to AC Principles, Use of Test Equipment, Fundamental Skills, Hand and Power Tools, Circuit Drawings, and Recordkeeping. The units are organized in a three-column format: Content, objectives, and teaching suggestions, with a resource list and suggested equipment list appended. The first column, Content, consists of items of instruction; the second column, Objectives, states in performance terms the student achievement which must result from the item of instruction; the third column, Teaching Suggestions, presents a variety of methods by which the content may be taught. Following the eight units is a listing of only the tools and equipment considered essential to properly instruct a class-group of 20 students in basic electricity. A sample course of study for this section of basic electricity is also provided, intended as an aid to creating the syllabus-based course of study, and tailored to local conditions. Content outlines for Section II and III of the curriculum are included. (HD)
