Industrial Arts Instructional Tasks/Competencies for Energy and Power. Competency-Based Education.
George Mason Univ., Fairfax, VA.; Henrico County Public Schools, Glen Allen, VA. Virginia Vocational Curriculum Center.
This instructional task/competency package is designed to help teachers and administrators in developing competency-based instructional materials for an energy and power course. Part 1 contains a description of the industrial arts program and a course description, instructional task/competency list, and content outline for energy and power. The task/competency list includes the minimum tasks/competencies identified for inclusion in the course, listed in a suggested order of instruction. The content outline corresponds with the task/competency list in content and sequencing. However, within the outline, tasks are identified in topical form and related tasks are grouped into broader topics of instruction. Part 2 contains information in each of the tasks/competencies identified in Part 1. The following information is provided for each task/competency: appropriate program and course designation, performance and enabling objectives, a criterion-referenced measure, and suggested activities and aids for instruction. The six major content/concept areas for energy and power into which the tasks/competencies are grouped are introducing power, exploring thermal power, exploring pneumatics, exploring hydraulics, exploring electric motors, and exploring motor controls. Appendixes include listings of information and resources and of audiovisual materials. (YLB)
