I am new to teaching woodworking and am searching out suppliers for curriculum. I have beginners only it would have to be pretty basic entry level stuff. It would like it to include day plans, projects as well as tests. Any suggestions?

There are several university affiliated educational research centers that publish curriculum guides. Two that stand out in Industrial Ed / TechEd are the Instructional Materials Laboratory, Columbia MO http://iml.missouri.edu and the Oklahoma CIMC, Stillwater OK www.okcimc.com. Both have good guides but sometimes the guides can get a little old. Also, for a topic like woodworking you need to check the intended grade level and "area" for the guide. Picking up a guide keyed to the Adult Ed / Agricultural Education / Woodworking standards may not do you any good.

The major textbook companies make every effort ensure that their texts conform to the many state curriculum standards developed by CA, FL, GA, TX... (called State Adoption Standards) These tend to be fairly uniform, grade specific and authoritative. Publishers supply the state adoption committee with a document - loosely called "correlations". This tells you item by item if the text covers the material called for in the state standards. Some states post the correlations on line, some have a place you can order them - and some of the strictly vocational publishers may make them available to you (for a nominal fee).

Many state DOE's or your states teacher ed university maintain a curriculum library which will house these guides. This may be a lending library, a catalog, an "approved list" or just a room where you have to sort through piles of old guides -- but check with your state VocEd Supervisor to see if there is a place you can contact to borrow or review these materials.

Post your email and several of us can send you some stuff.

I hated most of the curriculums that I could find when I started so I wrote my own very short text book for each tool. I keep it in a binder and run copies each year to give to my students. This is nice because you can update it as tools or times change, or as you find things you forgot.

I'll take your e-mail for communication purposes but I like to mail the bulk packets.

I hope I'm not repeating what other have said, but WoodLINKS is a great place to start. Here are the two URLS, one for Canada and one for the USA

I went to that wood links web site and the $5,000.00 cost of joining the organization to get some help is a little steep. Not to mention that it is out of character with this forums policies of sharing resources freely.

We currently are using the Goodheart-Willcox Modern Woodworking text and student work books for the classroom instruction on safety, tools, joinery, finishing etc... We start our students out with a number of simple projects like a large cutting board with a handle. This project introduces them to the use of the table saw, planer, jointer, band saw (using templates/patterns), biscuit cutter, clamps, router, glue, drill press, sanders etc....

Mike, I'm glad you mentioned the Missouri publications. I have been away from teaching for about 25 years, but for the 10+ years I taught in Missouri I was active with state curriculum revisions for a few years. My college professors had participated in writing some of the guides. I participated in a complete re-writing of the metalworking guide. Hopefully they have been systematicly updated.

Hey everybody. I'm new to this forum and and have a question about becoming a high school wood shop teacher. Currently, I am a Chief in the Navy with 14 years in and when I get out, I want to be a shop teacher. I have a BS in Adult and Career Education, but am unsure if there are any specific requirements that I must meet to break into this field. Are there any certifications that I must have to qualify? I would appreciate any help that you could give me.
