Metric Conversion in Vocational Education. Final Report. Volume I of Two Volumes.
Feirer, John L.
This first volume of a two-volume final report describes a project concerned with developing indepth metric teaching units in the areas of carpentry and machine shop, preparing instructional materials to teach metrics in Spanish, and developing three-dimensional metric instructional materials and cassette tapes for persons with reading difficulties and sight handicaps. An introductory section describes procedures used in accomplishing the goals: (1) planning and consultation with specialists in the four areas, (2) development of the instructional material by consultants under the direction of the Director of the Center for Metric Education and Evaluation, and (3) evaluation of the materials developed for persons with reading difficulties and sight handicaps using other consultants with special competencies in evaluation. The remainder of volume I consists of an outline for developing a model of career education and the teaching-learning modules developed in the project for teaching metrics in carpentry (44 pages), in machine shop (28 pages), and in bilingual (Spanish) education (115 pages). (Volume II, bound separately, covers the materials for persons with reading difficulty and the sight handicapped and presents project conclusions.) (LAS)
