Developed through close coordination between contractors, construction workers, and vocational educators, this instructor's manual is designed to help heavy equipment instructors present materials in a systematic format. The instructional materials in the manual are written in terms of student performance, using measurable behavioral objectives. Criterion-referenced evaluation instruments provide for a uniform measurement of student progress. The manual contains four sections organized into 23 units, each consisting of eight components: performance objectives, suggested activities for the teacher, information sheets, assignment sheets, job sheets, transparency masters, tests, and answers to tests and assignment sheets. Units of instruction are designed for use in more than one lesson or class period. The four sections cover hoisting equipment, earth-moving equipment, ditching and trenching equipment, and miscellaneous equipment (pumps, compressors, vibrators, paving breakers, and generators). Materials are illustrated with drawings and photographs. (KC)
