Students in Small Gas Engines will learn the basics of 2- and 4- stroke engines. The class follows the guidelines set by the Equipment and Engine Training Council. Using both classroom and shop activities, students will learn the basics of engine repair for equipment such as weed eaters, chain saws, lawn mowers and snow blowers.
Most assignment in Small Gas Engines will be completed in class. Students are given adequate time to work on assignments.
For students who do not complete assignments in class, they may check a textbook out of the library on an overnight basis to complete the assignment.
$15.00 for the semester
$3.50 for glasses (optional, you may bring the glasses from home)
LATE WORK POLICY:
Students who do not have their assignments completed when the class grades them will loose credit. If they would like to earn their credit back, they may come in before school and I will go over the assignment with them. If students do not turn in their composition books when they are due all work work graded in the composition for that turn in date will be considered late and receive 50% of the score earned.
STUDENT MAKE UP TIMES:
I am available to students for make up work between 7:00 am and 7:25 am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Students are expected to work on engine projecects for the majority of the class. The class will work through the tear down and reassembly of 2 classroom engines together. This will give the students an understanding of the process that I expect them to follow while in the shop.
After completing the classroom engines, students are expected to work on their own projects. The school has a few engine projects that students can work on, but not enough for everyone.
BROKEN/LOST/DAMAGED TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT:
Students who neglect and loose their tools and projects will be charged for the replacements of those items.
