Larson, Curtis G.; Frazer, Cloyce
This curriculum guide describes a broad range of teaching objectives and student learning experiences in several metal occupations. It also provides assistance to students in gathering data for personal decision making with regard to the metals industry as a career alternative and helps prepare students for entrance into post-high school technical programs. Specific units cover entry-level skills development in the areas of safety, metals technology, bench and wrought metal, sheet metal, art metal, forging, heat treating, foundry, welding, machine shop, metals in everyday living, and finishing. The guide is also designed to assist the local teacher with organization and management of the course. It describes the accountability line and the information flow from the teacher to the principal and to the superintendent. The management system includes measurable objectives which detail the responsibilities of the teacher and the students. The student performance objectives are arranged in nine-week time frames to facilitate the collection of evaluation data at the same time as quarterly grades are issued. The appendix contains a management system report, time frame checklists for teacher and student objectives, and a narrative report example with instructions. Two other curriculum guides accompany this document and include performance objectives for courses in health occupations education (CE 019 076) and industrial arts (CE 019 075). (CT)
