Cape Cod Regional Technical High School

Project Description

Grant objective: Students will be able to: identify transmission components, perform precision measurements, describe operational characteristics, and perform work related tasks associated with transmissions.

Activities: Students will attempt to demonstrate their skills in a series of activity sheets in the form of a formal assessment to gauge their learning progress. Students will identify, diagnose, and problem solve common scenarios and repair methods geared to their ability and present learning outcomes.

Goals: Students will gain knowledge, confidence, and employ ability skills to become more marketable in their current job market.

How will the project be evaluated (e.g. how will you gauge its success)

I will gauge the students by effectively communicating with the students to meet the needs and outcomes of all students learning needs.

In addition, students will participate in a series of formative and summative assessments to gauge their learning progress and adjust to their learning needs along the program duration.

In further gauging for the success of the program, a survey of what learning outcomes where most beneficial, will be implemented at the end of the unit.

Benefit to the students and the school

I believe the students and school  will benefit from this grant because the students will learn and become confident in performing everyday work related tasks associated with there industry. In further saying, students will gain employ ability skills and confidence needed to be successful in today’s challenging workforce.

Timeline of Project (when will you do the project, if applicable)

The program will be developed and implemented into the curriculum between the 2015-16 school year.
