Grimes, L. A., Jr.
The student's manual in this two-part instructional kit is designed to help students in individualized courses in bricklaying and stone masonry to tie together classroom learning and on-the-job practice. The manual includes assignments, technical information, objectives that tell what the student is to learn from each assignment, and exercise questions that can help in meeting those objectives. The 14 units of the student manual cover the following topics: introduction to the manual, basic mathematics, safety, drawings and blueprints, masonry tools and equipment, masonry materials, elements of masonry construction, wall construction, footings and arches, chimneys and fireplaces, floors and pavements, cleaning clay products, concrete masonry and stone construction, and owning a masonry business. The related instructor's guide contains suggestions on the use of the student manual and on coordinating work experience with learning at school. The guide also contains (1) answers to exercise questions and assignment test questions, (2) one set of assignment tests, and (3) a work sheet that the instructor can use to relate instruction to job experience for students. Coordinated with the student's manual, the guide contains 14 sections corresponding to the manual's 14 units. (KC)
