Competency-Based Preservice Construction Trades Curriculum.
Nelms, Howard F.
Intended for use at Eastern Illinois University in a model curriculum designed to prepare secondary school teachers in the field of residential building, this curriculum guide provides a competency-based preservice construction trades program. The guide is divided into thirteen units as follows: (1) pre-construction planning; (2) structural layout, incorporating clearing the site and topographic alterations; (3) building foundation; (4) forming, placing, and finishing concrete; (5) carpentry to frame the structure; (6) carpentry to enclose the structure; (7) plumbing; (8) heating and cooling; (9) electrical wiring; (10) carpentry to finish the interior, including thermal insulation; (11) painting and finishing of both the interior and exterior; (12) mechanical trades to complete the plumbing, heating and cooling, and electrical power; and (13) landscape design. Within each of the thirteen units, one or more sub-units are identified and specific performance objectives are given. A condition statement prefaces the listing of objective statements for each section. The types of learning activities used to attain the objectives vary from written exercises to the physical performance of the building tasks. Included at the end are an extensive bibliography of resource materials in printed and audiovisual formats and a list of resource organizations. (The final report of the project that produced this curriculum, and which also contains two additional subject areas, is available in ERIC--see note.) (ELG)
