This module on ignition systems is the second of six (CE 028 296-301) in the auto mechanics course of a bilingual skills training program. (A Vocabulary Development Workbook is available as CE 028 294.) The course is designed to furnish theoretical and laboratory experience. Module objectives are for students to develop trade-related Spanish/English vocabulary, to name functions and circuits of an ignition system, to explain how voltage is increased by the coil and the spark is delivered by the distributor, and to name common problems caused by a faulty ignition system. Contents include list of module objectives; pretest; five sections on (1) ignition systems, (2) primary and secondary circuits, (3) how voltage is increased, (4) delivery of the spark to the proper cylinder, and (5) problems of the primary and secondary circuits; posttests; and English/Spanish vocabulary list. Each section is organized into this format: instructions in Spanish and English; vocabulary; and concepts (statements or questions to direct reading); readings; and worksheets to evaluate comprehension of the trade-related reading material. Worksheets also cover these areas: vocabulary, definitions, word attack skills, spelling, writing skills, and application of terminology to the trade area. (YLB)
