AUTO II (ASE GENERAL SERVICE TECH)

Course Description/Overview/Welcome Statement

Auto II (ASE General Service tech): 0.5 credits CTE: Grades 9-12

Students will need to have completed Auto I (Intro) before being allowed in the course.

Students may work on their own cars to learn hands-on automotive service skills with emphasis on basic electrical, and skills needed to be successful in automotive service and repair. Career opportunities include: entry level technicians, or excellent college prep for engineering majors. National certification through the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) exams is available. Instructor is an ASE Master Automotive Technician.

Learning Expectations

Students will improve their abilities using hand and power tools that are common in the automotive industry.

Students will perform minor repairs on shop vehicles.

Students will learn about precision measuring tools and how to use them.

Students will learn basic electrical principals, including ohms law.

Assessment of Progress

Students will complete a hand and power tool project that will demonstrate their ability to use the tools.

Students will demonstrate their understanding and ability to perform minor repairs.

Students will demonstrate their understanding and use of precision measuring tools.

Students will demonstrate their understanding of ohms law, wiring diagrams, diagnostics, and wire repair.

Course Materials

Students will need a three ring binder to keep handouts and assignments. I recommend using the same binder used for Auto 1. This binder will also be used to keep a work journal. This journal will be graded at mid term, term and end of term.

Students must have coveralls, safety glasses, and closed toed shoes to work in the shop. Students will be supplied coveralls. Safety glasses will be available for student use.

Classroom Procedures

Regular attendance is critical to student success and the Timpview attendance will be followed.

Each class meeting will potentially earn the student 10 points, identified as Daily Points (Week 1, Week 2, etc.) in Power School and compiled weekly. Daily points will be calculated according to the student’s daily participation. 10 points will be deducted from the weekly point totals for each absence and 5 points deducted for each tardy. This would exclude missing class for posted extra-curricular, doctor excused, pre-approved or appealed absences. A student found in the shop without coveralls, safety glasses, closed toed shoes, or daily needed materials will be considered unready for work and will be assessed a tardy.

Students are expected to be engaged in the process. Each student needs to complete each assignment, including shop clean up.

Calendar of Due Dates for Major Assignments

Term one will focus on the use of hand and power tools.

Term two will focus on minor repairs.

Progress Reports and Report Cards

Parents/Guardians are expected to review the disclosure/permission document with their students. Parent/Guardian signature as well as student signature with documents are required to be submitted to Mr. Hassell before shop work begins.

If parents have any questions, please contact Mr. Hassell via e-mail at: michaelhas@provo.edu. I will respond to emails during normal work hours, within 24 hours in most cases.

Personal Statement and other items (optional)

Each student is required to complete each task once. For better understanding I recommend students complete tasks more than once. I give plenty of time for students to complete the work more than one time.

If you are struggling, come see me. We can fix it but I need you to tell me when you get confused so I can help you understand. I want you to be successful and will work as hard as you do to get you there.

Students in CTE courses are encouraged to join the Timpview Chapter of Skills-USA. Joining is strictly voluntary. Club dues are $20.00, which go directly to the THS Skills-USA budget for club activities.
