Downing, C. L.; Adcox, John W., Jr.
Several intermediate performance objectives and corresponding criterion measures are listed for each of 12 terminal objectives in this course guide in basic carpentry. The guide is designed to prepare persons for initial employment, or to upgrade or retrain persons already employed, or to provide the apprenticeship related course work necessary to insure successful employment in the carpentry trade. The plan of instruction includes specialized classroom and shop experiences concerned with all phases of construction carpentry. Included is training in layout, fabrication, assembly, installation, and repair of structural units. Emphasis is placed on care and use of carpentry tools, equipment and materials, common systems of frame construction and principles involved, drafting, blueprint reading, applied mathematics, materials estimating, and interpretation of building codes. The titles of the terminal performance objective sections are Orientation, Safety, Basic Measurement, Hand Tools, Power Tools, Maintenance of Tools, Building Products, Building Insulation, Hardware (Rough and Finish), Adhesives, Building Nomenclature and Blueprint Reading, and Simulated House Construction. (This manual and 54 others were developed for various secondary level vocational courses using the System Approach for Education (SAFE) guidelines.) (HD)
