This task-based curriculum guide is intended to help secondary teachers provide relevant training for an entry-level job as an electrician. 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 electricity (construction trades). Tasks are grouped under these nine duties: computing service loads; installing service entrance; installing switch boxes and outlet boxes; roughing in feeders, branch circuit cables, and circuits; trimming out electrical devices and appliances; installing lighting fixture; installing electrical environmental control components; maintaining existing wiring; 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 a student achievement record, a class achievement record, and a glossary of vocational terms. (YLB)
