Program Philosophy:
The educational philosophy of the Metal Fabrication program is to prepare students to

be skilled, productive members of the workforce and the community at large. By

providing students with a safe learning environment, we promote individual creativity,

respect for diversity and formation of a strong work ethic. Students will be provided with

a challenging technical education curriculum that is aligned with state and national

standards.



Grade 10 Goal: The goal for sophomore year is to expand on the teachings of freshman

year, getting more in depth with each lesson. Students will begin to use their acquired

skills to work on some of the simpler outside jobs that the community brings to us,

developing a strong work ethic with a focus on quality workmanship. New skills and

concepts will be realized by students throughout the year.




Program Description:
        The McCann metal fabrication program is a Chapter 74 approved program.

Students of metal fabrication are required to create finished products of commercial value

from stock metal using a variety of fabrication techniques. Those products may be

ductwork, wrought iron fencing and other structural parts, or be as creative and artistic as

metal sculpture.

        Students are taught metal composition, strength of materials, structural design,

blueprint reading and sheet metal pattern drafting. Proper sheet metal fabrication and

installation techniques are taught in order to satisfy the demand for skilled sheet metal

mechanics. In order to keep up with the advances in the field we have added instruction

in CNC plasma cutting, including basic instruction in the use of appropriate computer

software programs.

        Students are taught a variety of welding processes, including: oxy-acetylene

welding; shielded metal arc welding (SMAW); gas metal arc welding (GMAW); gas

tungsten arc welding (GTAW); plastic welding.

        McCann is an American Welding Society Educational Institution Member. Every

student is enrolled as a member in 10th grade, and receives AWS’ monthly publication at

home. Many of the articles are used in lessons in the theory classroom.

        During a student’s four years of training they will be instructed in the safe and

proper use of a variety of metal forming machines, hand tools and power tools. Students

are challenged to problem solve, and allowed to make mistakes in a safe, controlled

environment.

        The McCann metal fabrication department takes in projects from the city and the

community, allowing students to not only build or repair real world objects but to see and

take pride in their contribution to their community for years beyond graduation. Past

projects include a wrought iron fence surrounding the North Adams library, repairing a

sander body for Notchview Reservation in Windsor, repairing broken or worn parts for

the North Adams highway department, and a steel railing for the handicapped egress

ramp at Haskin’s School in North Adams.

        A Cooperative Work Program is offered to junior and senior students that

maintain good academic standing, attendance and vocational proficiency. Some of the

companies that have employed our co-op students in the past are Adams Plumbing and

Heating, Morrison Berkshire, Protech Armored Products,

Atlantis Equipment and R.I. Baker Company.

        Graduates can expect to be eligible for entry level positions as arc welders, steel

fabricators, duct installers or sheet metal fabricators. Beginning income levels range from

$18,000 to $29,000. With additional education and experience, career opportunities

become available as pipe welders, welding technicians, management and sales, welding

engineers, welding inspectors, estimators and project managers. Income levels for these

positions range from $35,000 to $65,000.



Course Syllabus for Grade 10

        Sophomore students in the metal fabrication program will review the importance

of shop safety. Instructors will expand teaching on hand tools and power tools, and

introduce new equipment, concepts and skills.

        Students will follow blueprints to layout and fabricate small projects. Each project

will introduce new skills and concepts, building on skills previously learned. Projects

include:

1. Large toolbox

2. Tackle box

3. Mail box

4. Planter and tray

5. Spice rack

6. Groove seam

7. Dove tail seam

8. Pittsburgh lock

9. Folder seam

10. Wind chimes

11. Horseshoe cowboy

12. The rose

13. Ferris wheel


        Students will refresh their welding skills in both SMAW and GMAW processes.

These skills will be expanded upon with further study, adding new positions and

techniques.

        In theory, math skills are built upon with the focus on manipulation of fractions,

linear measurement and basic geometry. Welding theory will focus on identification of

symbols and abbreviations used on welding blueprints.




Evaluation

        Each day, students are evaluated on their work as well as their personal effort and

attitude. Each category is given a point value. Maximum point values add up to 100

points. Students earn a daily score, which will be averaged at the end of the week. This

weekly score counts as 70% of the students’ grade average, with the remaining 30%

Instructional Activities:
        Students are allowed to bring in projects from home to work on, provided it
        relates to metal fabrication. Other projects from people in the community are
        welcome as well and offer students real world experience in dealing with a
        customer. Another tool used to reinforce training is the Skills U.S.A. competition,
        where students compete against one another in welding and fabrication. The top
        competitors will advance to the state level of competition and compete against
        other schools.
