Army Engineer School, Fort Belvoir, VA.; Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
This individualized, self-paced correspondence course in carpentry has been adapted from military curriculum materials for use in vocational and technical education programs. This second volume of a two-volume set is designed to present the theory portion of carpentry through the teaching of basic skills of frame construction. This Carpentry II course contains 4 lessons. Lesson 1, Building Layout and Floor Framing, discusses the location and layout of a building site and the methods and materials to be used in construction foundations. Lesson 2, Exterior Framing, explains how to make a building layout and do floor framing, and the purpose and use of sills, girders, joints, and bridging. In lesson 3, Roof Framing and Materials, the methods and procedures for constructing roof frames and coverings, including the selection of materials and the use of tools, are discussed. The final lesson, Interior Framing, explains the methods for installing and maintaining interior walls and ceiling, doors and window trims, and floors and stairways. Each lesson contains an objective with reading assignments, exercises, and answers to the exercises. The answers are keyed to the text for student self-study and evaluation. A course examination, without answers, is provided. (This course is recommended for use in a shop or on-the-job learning situation.) (KC)
