Armstrong, Ivan J.
To assist teachers and students in understanding the latest concepts and functions of the automobile, this curriculum guide treats both the skills and knowledge necessary for auto mechanics. Developed by an advisory committee of instructors and mechanics in the industry, this manual consists of the following five sections: orientation and safety; measuring units and rules; engines and their systems; suspension; and brakes. Each section contains several instructional units which are organized into eight parts: (1) student behavioral objectives, which state the goals of the course; (2) suggested activities, outlining steps for both students and instructors to accomplish specific objectives; (3) information sheets, which provide the content necessary to meet the knowledge objectives of the unit; (4) transparency masters; (5) job sheets, which outline the skills being taught; (6) assignment sheets for homework or classroom use (answer sheets are also included); (7) paper-pencil and performance tests constructed to measure student achievement of each objective; and (8) test answers.
