Community Living Skills Guide: Beginning Woodworking.
Miller, Steve; Smith, Don
This is one of twenty course guides in the Community Living Skills Guide for the College for Living series which provides guidelines and workbook activities for the course, Beginning Woodworking, Use of Basic Hand Tools and Shop Safety. The series of courses for developmentally disabled adults is intended to supplement residential programs and to aid in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. This course of study focuses on safe and proper use of hand tools and shop safety, with an introduction to mass production techniques. It is intended to help the students develop safe working practices, skills necessary to use hand tools, an interest and appreciation for woodworking, a knowledge of leisure time activities in woodworking, and an awareness of job opportunities in woodworking. The course is based on this four step outline: (1) orientation and pre-test (making a breadboard), (2) making a mirrored wall shelf and book/record rack, (3) introduction to mass production techniques in industry, and (4) a personal project. These materials are provided for each step: terminal and performance objectives, homework assignments, plans of procedures for the projects, and suggested activities. A sample twelve-week syllabus and course outline are provided. Other guides in the series and related documents (a volunteer training workshop packet and curriculum guide for fourteen courses) are available separately. (See note.) (YLB)
