Electronics Book I. Bilingual Vocational Training.
Johnson, Dennis; And Others
This manual, the first of three curriculum guides for an electronics course, is intended for use in a program combining vocational English as a second language (VESL) with bilingual vocational education. A description of the VESL program design appears first. The next section provides a format on developing lesson plans for teaching the technical and general vocabulary contained in each job training lesson immediately after vocational lessons. Specific VESL teaching activities are provided for recognition, production, and application. Lesson plans for vocabulary development follow. Functions (objectives) are correlated to structures and vocabulary and required materials. Glossaries of technical and related general vocabulary follow. The vocational training lesson plans are then presented. They are divided into seven units: electronics math, history of electronics, tool use, meters, nature of electronics, connectors/insulators, components, and resistors. A cover page to each unit provides the unit goal and an overview of the unit. The format for each lesson plan is as follows: teaching materials source, main concepts, technical and related general vocabulary, teaching activity, material and notes, length of lesson, and evaluation. Handouts for each lesson include informational material, homework/assignments, lab experiments, Vietnamese and Cantonese translations, and unit tests. Numerous drawings and diagrams illustrate the text. (YLB)
