Intended to help local administrators, teacher educators, and technology education/industrial arts teachers in Louisiana improve technology education and standardize its instruction, this document contains teacher's materials for a 10-unit course in construction technology for 10th-, 11th-, or 12th-grade students. The instructional units are as follows: Rules and Regulations; Safety in the Laboratory or Classroom; Introduction to the Construction Industry; Basic Construction Tools and Equipment; Construction Mathematics; Safety and Health in Construction; Pre-Construction Planning; Construction Processes and Production; Construction Completion; and Construction in the Future. The document lists unit titles, describes the course, allots time for the units, outlines the course and presents a table that covers each unit's objectives, the time allotted for each, instructional topics, student activities, teacher activities, and references to resources. Eleven appendices comprising the bulk of the document contain instructional material (much of it in the form of illustrated handouts) for use with each unit. Appendix 11 contains information on student competitive events, and a 15-item bibliography concludes the guide. (CML)
