This plan of instruction, study guides, workbooks, and programmed texts for a secondary-postsecondary-level course in refrigeration and air conditioning are one of a number of military-developed curriculum packages selected for adaptation to vocational instruction and curriculum development in a civilian setting.

The plan of instruction contains an outline of the teaching steps, criterion objectives, lesson duration, correlation of tasks with a training standard, and support materials and guidance. Student materials include three study guides with text information, objectives, review exercises, and references; three workbooks with performance exercises; and five programmed texts for individualized instruction. Commercial texts, military technial manuals, and audiovisual aids are suggested, but not provided. Materials may be adapted for individualized instruction, remedial work, or independent study. (YLB)
