Merklein, Robert, Ed.; And Others
The 12 competency-based instructional units in Level I of the four-level Electricity/Electronics Curriculum series are designed to help the instructor in planning, organizing, and presenting introductory electricity/electronics materials. Nine-week and 18-week unit outlines are provided for grades 7 and 8. The instructional units are generally divided into two parts. Part 1 is structured to give the instructor a lesson plan overview of the unit and includes the following: title of unit, time allocated, unit goal, unit objectives, evaluation, instructor's references, overview, suggested presentation hints/methodology, supplemental activities and demonstrations, and instructional module contents. The second part contains the packet of material to be used in the classroom. When appropriate, each unit includes lecture outline/transparency master, pretest and posttest (keyed), vocabulary enrichment activities, student information handouts, related activities, and answer key. Instructors may delete or add materials. Unit topics are orientation; introduction to electricity; safety; methods for producing electricity; wiring tools and wires; soldering; magnetism and electromagnetism; circuits, symbols, and component identification; resistors and identification systems; small appliance repair; sources of the earth's energy; and occupations in electricity.
