Industrial Mechanics Occupational Cluster Guide.
This guide, developed by the Oregon Department of Education, is intended to assist the vocational teacher in designing and implementing a cluster program in industrial mechanics. It suggests teaching ideas and is aimed at high school students, as well as those wishing to enter community college, university, or apprenticeship programs. The guide is divided into four sections: (1) cluster organization and implementation; (2) instructional emphasis areas; (3) assessment; and (4) appendix. The Cluster Organization and Implementation section talks about goal-based planning and includes a proposed cluster curriculum, a sample curriculum schedule and planned course statement, allied support causes, information about individualized instruction, and current Oregon Manpower Data. The Instructional Emphasis Areas section contains suggested course goals, performance indicators and suggested learning activities in safety, basic mechanical skills, mechanical maintenance techniques, measurement, machine tools, mechanical systems, electrical systems, fluid power systems and career preparation. Section three is focused on Assessment and is followed by the appendix, which contains three documents: (1) job descriptions; (2) machines and equipment; and (3) instructional analysis for organizing learning experiences.
