Industrial Electronics and T.V./Computer Repair. 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. Most pages in the document are tables that describe the relationship of vocational skills to basic skills within the industrial electronics and TV/computer repair program. These pages are organized by instructional unit and the topics within them. For each topic and associated task(s) are listed the theory and basic skills covered. Also listed are the expected student outcomes. The nine instructional units included are: orientation; safety; hand tools; structure of matter; basic electronics; digital electronics; test instruments; computers and PECs; and fluid power systems (hydraulics and pneumatics).
