Readings in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration.
Uberto, Jeffrey A.
Designed to encourage vocational high school students to read by offering reading materials relevant to their vocational goals, this document contains thirty-seven articles related to air conditioning and refrigeration which have been selected from trade journals, magazines, and newspapers and adapted to the students' reading capabilities. A vocabulary study accompanies each article, and exercises to stimulate class discussion, improve comprehension, study, writing, word attack, and other reading skills have been provided. Since the content assumes a certain degree of technical knowledge, any unfamiliar terminology or technique within the article can be used as a basis for additional lessons. The articles cover a broad range of air conditioning and refrigeration topics, including articles on safety, new uses in the area, and other related subjects. (BM)
