This competency-based curriculum guide begins the Introduction to Construction series. The series is designed with the flexible training requirements of open shop contractors, preapprenticeship programs, multicraft high school programs, technology education programs, and cooperative education programs in mind. This guide contains 3 sections and 15 instructional units: industry orientation (free enterprise system, infrastructure of the United States, starting a business, industry orientation, becoming a good leader, job advancement), basic construction knowledge (orientation to safety and basic first aid, basic math, measuring, basic plan reading, builder's level and transit, site layout), and related equipment (tools and equipment related to all crafts, ladders and scaffolds, rigging and material handling). Eight basic components form a unit of instruction: performance objectives (unit and specific objectives), suggested activities for the teacher (an outline of unit contents and an instructor's guide), information sheets, assignment sheets, job sheets, transparency masters and supplements, tests, and answers to tests and assignment sheets.
