Transportation Cluster Volume 6 [Farm and Earthmoving Equipment].
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Justice, Harrisburg. Bureau of Correction.
The document is one of seven volumes of instructional materials developed around a cluster of Transportation Industries. Primarily technical in focus, they are designed to be used in a cluster-concept program and to integrate with a regular General Education Development (G.E.D.) program so that students may attain an employable skill level and a general academic background simultaneously. They provide basic skills necessary to enter a number of occupations in the Transportation cluster rather than an indepth development of skill in any one occupation. The volume contains approximately 120 hours of instruction in Farm and Earthmoving Equipment and consists of 20 instructional units, each having one or more specific lessons. Each unit is designed for six hours, or one day, of instruction: three hours of technical laboratory instruction and three hours of related study in science, math, communications, and social studies. In most cases, there is only one lesson per unit. The units offer the instructor the essential materials: the aims (both in techncial areas and in the four general education areas), instructional aids, topical outline and activities, suggested time sequence, evaluation guidelines, summary, and references. A selected bibliography concludes the volume. (Author/AJ)
