Careers in Construction: Construction Industry Series: Student Manual and Instructor's Guide.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Dept. of Occupational Education and Technology.
The guide for instructors of construction occupations provides instructional suggestions and informational sources for structuring an exploratory program. The program is divided into the following blocks, representing different experiences in construction: (1) wood; (2) finishing; (3) engineering, support, and management services; (4) metal; (5) electricity; (6) masonry; and (7) heavy equipment. Within each block are several units for which overall objectives, sources of information, academic related theory and information, subobjectives (in behavioral terms), and suggested activities are outlined. A four-step method for using the guide is suggested which consists of preparing the students by introducing the topic, presenting the lesson, student application, and followup (including career opportunities). Appended materials are a suggested tool and equipment list and a sample lesson plan. The accompanying student manual is designed to serve as a supplement to guidance services and is an introduction to construction careers. It contains general information about each career field and specific information about the occupational families within that field. Detailed information on working conditions, training requirements, wages, advancement, future outlook, and sources of additional information are included. (Author/MS)
