Tech Reading/Small Engines: Performance Package, Minnesota Profile of Learning.
Minnesota State Dept. of Children, Families, and Learning, St. Paul.
Developed by classroom teachers during the development phase of Minnesota's Graduation Standards, this performance package is made up of locally designed assignments that, taken together, show whether a student has learned and can apply the knowledge and skills related to technical reading regarding small engines. It begins with reference to the particular content standard addressed in the package (read and apply technical information from a variety of English language documents or electronic media), the educational level of the package (high school), and a summary statement of the content standard. It then describes the tasks associated with the student performances: (1) use specialized vocabulary and apply information from technical resources; and (2) disassemble and reassemble a large industrial 2- or 4-cycle engine. It then offers specific statements from the standard regarding what students should know and should do, the products, task description, special notes, and feedback checklists for each task enumerated in the package.
