Shep Sequens Help Students
Learn Basics Ui Many Trades
In the freshmen shop sequence, there are four areas
where each freshman spends one grading quarter in one
particular shop. The first shop is Sheet Metal, where
students make many proiects such as tool-boxes, spice
racks, dustpans, and parts boxes. Larger, more com-
plicated items such as smokers and tool boxes can also be
constructed. In Electric Shop, students learn how to splice
wires and how to make a crystal radio. Household items
such as irons or small motors are to be brought to class so
that they can be fixed. ln Machine Shop there are two
main proiects, the making ofa ball peen hammer and a
pair of clamps. Extra projects include a different style of
hammer head and a hacksaw handle. Automotive is the
fourth shop, in Automotive students learn by reading
books, watching many color films, and working on spark
plugs, carburetors, and fuel pumps.
Sophomores can choose which shop sequence they will
be in. Pattern and Foundry are in the field of manufac-
turing. ln Pattern the drawing and construction ofa mold
takes place, whereas in Foundry the mold is made by
pouring hot metal. ln Building Construction, the basics of
drywall framing and house framing are taught. Graphic
design emphasizes simple printing procedures, designing
of layouts and advertisements, and introduction to the
field of photography. Fluid Power and Aviation are two
other electives, Aviation teaches the students enrolled
about plone design and how to build a model ofa small
plane or of a plane wing. Fluid Power deals with
hydraulics, students learn by setting up circuits and taking
:part components. A typing class can also be taken by
sophomores for a shop credit.
