Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Coll. of Agriculture and Natural Resources Education Inst.
This task-based curriculum guide is intended to help secondary teachers provide relevant training for an entry-level job in communication electronics. Introductory materials include background information on trade and industrial education and program goals and safety information. Descriptions follow of the construction trades program, vocational cooperative education, work experience/unpaid work experience, work experience and career exploration programs, and vocational work study. This job information is then provided: job titles and a task inventory for communication electronics. Tasks are grouped under these five duties: maintaining communications devices, designing equipment and circuitry, servicing communications devices, television maintenance and servicing, and using employability skills. Duty tabs comprise the largest portion of the curriculum guide. Each task in the listing is presented in a one-page format that provides this information: duty, task, achievement indicators, criteria, tools and equipment, and resources. Other components of the curriculum guide include equipment list, a student achievement record, a class achievement record, a glossary of vocational terms, and a list of references. (YLB)
