Marine Trades. COM-LINK. Competency Based Vocational Curricula with Basic Skills and Academic Linkages.
This competency-based module uses the Ocean County (New Jersey) Vocational-Technical Schools curriculum-infused model for infusing basic skills instruction into vocational education. The model demonstrates the relationship of vocational skills to communication, mathematics, and science. The document begins with a philosophy statement; preface; a table that explains the number of hours required for academic credit in various programs and the number of those hours that are devoted to basic skills and vocational activities; matrices that show in which courses specific basic skills are taught; a list of objectives; and an explanation of student activities. The rest of the document consists of matrices that describe the relationship of vocational skills to basic skills within the marine trades program. These pages are organized by instructional unit and the topics within them. For each topic and associated task(s) are listed the theories and the communication, math, and science skills covered. Also listed are the expected student outcomes. The 30 units are: orientation; shop practices; electricity; two- and four-stroke engine theory and construction; inboard engine systems (ignition, lubrication fuel, cooling, electrical); inboard engine maintenance and tune-up and power transmission; propellers; stern drives; parts specialist; wooden hull repair; oxyacetylene equipment and procedures; corrosion control; diesel marine engines; outdoor boat yard operations; outboard motor (powerhead construction and maintenance, ignition, fuel, cooling systems, gearcases, charging systems, installation and maintenance, troubleshooting and estimating); fiberglass hull repair; boating fundamentals; and on-the-water activities.
