PCC BCT 218 Woodworking Projects Course Description – 2 credit hours
Designed for independent work on cabinet projects. Students are required to present shop drawings for instructor approval before beginning. Students must supply their own materials. Instructor will evaluate student knowledge of hand and power tool safety at first class meeting to determine whether skill level is appropriate for independent work.
Required Equipment and Supplies
- Pencil (every day)
- Proper work clothing (no high heels, sandals, etc)
At the end of the quarter I will assign students a letter grade based on the following criteria:
A = 90% to 100% B = 80% to 89% C = 70% to 79% D = 60% to 69% F = 0% to 59%
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:
- Daily Formative Assessment —100% of your grade (10pt/day)
Time cards will be graded at random times. They must be filled out daily, be legible, and written in complete sentences. An understanding of good work ethic and what is required in regards to daily grading can be found in the handout labeled “Good Work Ethic.” Students must have an approved project at all times.
Daily participation/formative assessment points breakdown:
10 pts… On time, 100% on task, completes clean-up work, safe
5 pts… A combination or one of the following: Tardy, not always on task, no clean-up, unsafe, disrespectful, etc.
0 pts… Absent, cutting class, defiant, unsafe, vandalism, etc.
Students will have the option to make up points because of failure to fill out their timecard correctly. Although this is not applicable in a real-life scenario, we believe that students should have the opportunity at this level to correct their mistakes and learn about consequences early. Below are actions that students can perform to gain points back towards their grade.
- Apply themselves diligently to work (Instructor appointed or on their own) during their own time; i.e. lunch, AAP, T.A., or during a free period. 20 minutes will count as 10 points (one day missed).
- Gaining extra points throughout their regular period by working bell to bell and performing acts of leadership and recognized responsibility.
In addition to the grading criteria you must meet the minimum requirements to pass:
- Pass ALL safety tests
- Complete all machine reports and check-outs in the first nine weeks
Student must maintain a “C” grade continually to remain in the program. Students whose grade falls below a “C” will be put on a plan of assistance for a period of up to two weeks. Failure to complete the plan of assistance will result in removal from the program.
