Articulated, Performance-Based Instruction Objectives Guide for Machine Shop Technology.
Henderson, William Edward, Jr., Ed.
This articulation guide contains 21 units of instruction for two years of machine shop. The objectives of the program are to provide the student with the basic terminology and fundamental knowledge and skills in machining (year 1) and to teach him/her to set up and operate machine tools and make or repair metal parts, tools, and machines (year 2). Introductory materials include recommended secondary and postsecondary programs. The nine units in year 1 are entitled introduction, precision measuring instruments, work layout, benchwork, grinding, drill press, power saws, basic engine lathe work, and mill work. The twelve units in year 2 are entitled advanced blueprint reading, turret lathe, surface grinder, shaper, tool and cutter grinder, heat treatment, hydraulic press, computer numerically controlled machining, machining math calculations, machine shop projects, oxyacetylene cutting/welding and brazing, and shielded metal arc welding. Each unit contains a unit overview, prerequisites, standards, suggested instruction times, and tasks. A task sheet for each task details the performance objective, performance actions, performance standards, suggested instruction time, resources, and related technical information. Additional references include matrixes of occupational competencies, suggested job skills, and a list of equipment. Sample outcome-referenced and performance tests are provided for most units. Appendixes include sample articulation agreements, and test directions. (YLB)
