Taylor, Marjorie; And Others
Oregon-Washington Carpenters/Employers Apprenticeship and Training Trust, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners Local 247, and Associated General Contractors cooperated with Mt. Hood Community College (Oregon) in a workplace literacy program. A drop-in learning center was operated at the Carpenter Training Center to provide support in mathematics to apprentices participating in intensive 1-week construction trade courses. Preapprentices were tested and provided with evening one-on-one tutorial assistance in math as requested. Customized mathematics instructional materials were developed for use in conjunction with job tasks requiring blueprints, calculator use, algebra, geometry, and specific measurement conversions. Student attendance at the center was voluntary and varied from 1 to 6 hours. (The four-page report is followed by supplementary project materials. Appendix I outlines objectives, methods, and evaluation criteria. It also provides information relating to the needs assessment. Appendix II contains summary data on learners. Completed post-program participant survey sheets are provided in Appendix III. Appendix IV contains instructional materials, including quizzes, worksheets, pretests/posttests, and revised instructor materials. Additional post-program participant survey sheets are presented in appendix V.) (YLB)
