Course Overview

DRAFTING I

This course introduces students to the use of simple and complex graphic tools used to communicate and understand ideas and concepts found in the areas of architecture, manufacturing, engineering, science and mathematics. Topics include business meeting skills and goal setting strategies, classical representation methods such as sketching, geometric construction techniques, CAD, orthographic projection, and dimensioning.

Skills in communication, mathematics, science, leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving are reinforced in this course. Job shadowing is an appropriate work-based learning strategy for this course. Hands-on work experience and SkillsUSAleadership activities provide many opportunities to enhance classroom instruction and career development. (Note that 3-D Solid Modeling has been added to the curriculum).

This curriculum was developed as a resource for teachers to use in planning and implementing a competency-based instructional management drafting program in their school. These materials are tools used in the curriculum management process.  Included are specific learning objectives, recommended activities, performance assessments, equipment list, facility specifications, a bibliography of reference media, and the names and addresses of media vendors.

It is our goal to provide the children of our state education of the highest quality. As this guide reflects our goal of continuous improvement, we encourage you to communicate to us ways to improve the material within this publication. Your suggestions will be welcomed and appreciated.

 
DRAFTING II ARCHITECTURE

This course is focused on the principles, concepts, and the use of complex graphic tools utilized in the field of architecture, structural systems, and construction trades. Emphasis is placed on the application of CAD tools in the creation of floor plans, foundation plans, basic roof plans, wall sections, and elevation drawings. Mathematical, scientific, and visual design concepts are reinforced. Work-based learning strategies appropriate for this course are apprenticeship and cooperative education. Hands-on work experiences and SkillsUSA-VICA leadership activities provide many opportunities to enhance classroom instruction and career development.
