This instructor's guide contains the materials required to teach a competency-based introductory course in concrete reinforcing to students who have chosen to explore careers in construction. It contains three units: concrete reinforcing materials, concrete reinforcing tools, and applied skills. Each instructional unit includes some or all of the basic components of a unit of instruction: performance objectives, suggested activities for the instructor, extensions and options, information sheets, student supplements, transparency masters, instructional supplements, assignment sheets, job sheets, practical tests, written tests, and answers to assignment sheets and written tests. Academic skills training is combined with vocational training throughout the instructional materials, and a system of icons has been used to help instructors identify activities into which training in the following basic skill areas has been infused: reading, science, creative thinking/problem solving, writing, oral communication, employability, math, interpersonal skills, and social studies. Most units of instruction are designed for use in more than one lesson or class period of instruction. These materials precede the instructional units: information on basic skills in curriculum, information on measuring student performance gains, and required criteria for a competency-based education program. A basic skills documentation matrix and competency profile are provided. (YLB)
