The Fab. 10,20,30 courses are courses designed to give the student more specific skills related to
working with metals. Many of the modules in the 20 course are extensions of the work the
student has done in the Fabrication 10 course. In the rare event that a student has not received all
5 credits from Fabrications 10, he/she may be required complete the failed module(s) from the 10
course before being able to move on to the 20 modules. And 20 level modules must be
completed before moving on to the 30 level modules.

Course Evaluation Per Module

Theory        - Assignments are averaged (40%)
Practical     - All jobs are averaged (40%)
Habits/Ethics - Work and Safety skills are assessed (20%)
A module is defined as a 1- credit course.

1.      The Welding course is a research course with hands on shop experience. The student is
        responsible for his/her learning and achievement in each Module. Reading and research
        skills are required to complete the theory aspect of the course. Self discipline and
        proper shop behaviour is essential to success in the practical work.
2.      The student must attend class regularly and come prepared with necessary materials as
        outlined under the heading course materials.
3.      The student is expected to complete all assignments and shop activities as outlined in
        each individual Module in order to be successful and obtain 1-credit.
        a.      All Module due dates are mandated by the LCHS CTS department head and thus
                all Module work must be completed on that date.
        b.       It is the student’s responsibility to check with the teacher, or fellow students for
                 missed assignments upon return from an absence.
4.      Due dates for each individual Module will be posted in the classroom.
5.      The student is required to bring their Modules to every class.
        a.      Within each Module is the list of assignments and shop activities that are
                mandatory for the successful completion of the Module.
        b.      When Modules are due, any shop activity that is not signed off with a grade will
                be marked as incomplete, and will jeopardise the successful completion and
                therefore no credit will be awarded. (With discretion of the teacher, special
                arrangement may be made in order to complete specific shop tasks).


6.      The shop facility & its contents, fellow students and teachers are to be treated with the
        respect and tolerance they deserve.
7.      Shop activities are to be performed on an individual basis; however, providing assistance
        to classmates in need is acceptable.
8.      Safety glasses and PPE clothing must be worn in the shop area at all times.
9.      Safety is of utmost importance and any disregard will result in removal from the shop
        area for a set period of time.
10.     Continued inappropriate behaviour will result in the removal from the course.
        a). Zero tolerance for pushing/ shoving or any other form of physical contact.
        b). Zero tolerance for verbal abuse including belittling another person in
        classroom or shop environment.
11.     At no time will food or drink be allowed in the shop area.

Failure to comply with the outlined expectations and any additional rules and regulations
put forth by the teacher may result in student dismissal from the course.
                          CTS Practical Work Grading Scale
The following table is used to grade each practical job. The student assesses themselves on their
work and then the teacher also provides a grade. The teacher mark will be recorded on the report

    Value        Description of skills demonstrated
      9          Meets defined outcome using proper procedures while demonstrating
                 superior leadership skills, superior technical skills and has never
                 forgotten to wear PPE.
       8         Meets defined outcome using proper procedures while demonstrating
                 leadership skills, above average technical skill and has never forgotten
                 to wear PPE.
       7         Meets defined outcome working in a self directed manner with very
                 limited assistance.

       6         Meets defined outcome with minimal assistance, while following a
                 guided plan of action.

       5         Meets defined outcome, but requires assistance from others, or has had
                 time management problems throughout the module.

       4         Has not met the defined outcome due to a missed concept or procedure;
                 or has acted in an unsafe manner, or has been off task repeatedly
                 throughout the module.
       3         Has not met the defined outcome due to multiple errors or omissions
                 observed; or has created a significant safety risk.

       2         Has not met the defined outcome due to incompletion of project.

       1         Not Scorable. The student has chosen to not attempt the job.

This Welding course is designed to give you the skills needed to assess, maintain, and repair
motor vehicles. It is a course where interest in Welding is the key to success and enjoyment of
the course. It is not a course where just passing is enough. All assignments are expected to be
completed. At the 20 level it is expected that the student understands and practices proper
behaviours. Many taking the 20 level have an interest in pursuing Welding as a career, and want
the opportunity to learn higher level skills.
         Research Assignment Format

    1.    Create a second margin inside from the left hand side of
          the page to split the page. (T – 29 – M)

          across the top space to form a heading. (P – 23 – T)

    3.    Put your name in the right hand corner on the first line of
          every sheet. (P – 34 – B)

    4.    Write the appropriate question number in the new margin

    5.     Answer the research question in statement form to
          include the question within the answer. When
          answering multiple choice questions you must write
          down the question and include the correct answer choice
          to form a complete sentence. (WB – 12 – T/L )

          add more information later.

    7.    At the end of the answer you must include the text
          referenced, page # and location on the page. Write (T –
          129- M ) instead of (Tuttle - page 129 - in the middle of
