Intended as a teaching and learning guide for use with high school students who are interested in the occupation of mine equipment repairman, this beginning course is designed to give students the opportunity to develop the necessary skills required to perform the tasks of a mine equipment repairman; acquire the related information necessary to exercise good judgment in carrying out the construction, maintenance, servicing, and repairing operations; and develop an appreciation of good workmanship, safety, and correct work habits and attitudes. The guide is designed as a three-year curriculum involving approximately fifteen hundred hours of class and laboratory instruction.

Each job sheet includes the material and equipment needed, safety precautions, competency procedures/steps, corresponding teaching/learning activities, and method of evaluation. Operation sheets supplement the job sheets and indicate to the student how to perform the many skill competency operations necessary to complete the assigned jobs.

Curriculum Coordinator Project. Final Report by Connellsville, Pa North Fayette County Area Vocational Technical School( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A project was conducted to develop pedagogical skills necessary for teaching competency-based vocational education (cbve) among the 17 teachers at the North Fayette Area Vocational-Technical School (Pennsylvania). Activities included validating a list of competencies for each vocational area using local craft committees; developing pedagogical skills necessary to write performance objectives for all competencies on the validated list of competencies; and designing a system for the development of an individualized instructional approach to curriculum-based on-career objectives of secondary students. These activities were carried out on a one-to-one basis between curriculum coordinators and teachers during released time for inservice teacher education. As a result of the project, instructors became more proficient in working with competency-based vocational education; a competency-based approach to curriculum was developed at the school; and craft committees, instructors, and curriculum coordinators developed a closer working relationship and better knowledge of cbve. (Included in the report are competency-based vocational education materials developed through the project, lesson plans, sample validated task lists, and evaluation instruments.) (Author/KC)
