Adapted from military service training materials, this publication contains course materials for teaching roofing, both in the classroom and through practical experience. Students completing this short course will be able to use common tools for laying out, building and maintaining wood and composition shingles, roll roof coverings, and built-up roofing coverings. Shop and theory assignments are provided in the course. The materials are divided into an introductory class on safety and then four sections covering built-up roofing, composition shingle roof covering, wood shingle roof covering, and a course summarization section. The teacher's instruction guide offers information about class objectives, references, instructional materials, aids, homework assignments, tools, and materials. Criterion tests are provided where applicable. The teacher's guide contains a three-column format for teaching the material, with an outline of subject matter, and suggested teacher activity and student activity. Four job sheets are provided for students, and photos and line drawings are used where applicable. (The military-developed curriculum materials in this course package were selected by the National Center for Research in Vocational Education Military Curriculum Project, acquired, evaluated, adapted, and disseminated to the six regional Curriculum Coordination Centers and other instructional materials agencies.)
