    Course Description: Industrial Technology is a course designed to introduce students to general Industrial Technology practices.  Students will expand their knowledge and experience through various projects, lessons, and vocabulary.  Students will be expected to learn about and safely use hand tools, power tools, and woodworking machinery.  The projects are designed to give students as much experience as possible by using many different machines and tools.  The projects will also cover as many aspects of the building and woodworking industries as is possible in an entry level course.


    Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have Industrial Technology  and woodworking skills that will be useful in any aspect of the Industrial Technology  and construction industry.  Additionally, the student should have a broader understanding of Industrial Technology and construction processes as well as more in depth problem solving skills.  This course is also a pre-requisite for Building Construction.

    It is the student’s responsibility to account for material covered on days absent. I will calculate your grade by expressing your total accumulated points at the end of the term as a percentage of the possible points. It will be a letter grade based on the following:

    Attributes of Proficiency

    1. Basic: Denotes partial mastery of knowledge and skills associated with the standard.
    2. Proficient: Represents solid performance for each standard assessed. Students reaching this level have demonstrated competency of problems and apply problem solving strategies to real- world situations.
    3. Advanced: Denotes excellence in performance of each standard being assessed. At this level, a student can demonstrate a strong understanding and application of real-world situations. In addition; students can evaluate and create new learning.
