These lesson plans and student materials--some programmed texts and a workbook--for a secondary-postsecondary-level course in offset printing are one of a number of military-developed curriculum packages selected for adaptation to vocational instruction and curriculum development in a civilian setting. Purpose stated for the 250-hour course is to provide a working knowledge of the operation of lighographic offset presses in the reproduction of maps, charts, and other printed-line work and a general knowledge of the fundamentals of printing-bindery. The course consists of two sections: Press Fundamentals (8 lessons, 110 hours) and Offset Press Operating Procedures (5 lessons, 140 hours). The lesson plans include objectives, hours of class time, training aids and devices, student materials and equipment, references, lesson outlines suggesting instructional tactics, and student practical exercises and printing problems with grading sheets and answers. Student programmed texts, which are provided for a number of the lessons, also contain self-tests. The student workbook provides student outlines for each lesson which include objectives, study references, supplementary information, and space for student comments. A glossary of photolithographic terms and pertinent excerpts from the Army technical manual, Offset Photolithography and Map Reproduction, are also provided. (YLB)
