Hey, all! I figure with all the experience floating around this place, there's likely to be a few of you who could help me out!
I was recently hired as the Shop/Industrial Arts teacher at a small private school, who really had no other options besides me (or they would have hired them instead!). Although I've worked in various shops over the years, I'm now faced with the job of coming up with classroom curriculum for students from 6th to 12th grade, with an average of 10 students in the shop at a time. Does anyone have books they'd recommend for my students--project books of various skill levels-- or books they'd recommend to me, as I learned most of what I know "unofficially", and feel grossly unprepared to teach proper usage and safety of the machines to fairly young students.
