Summary

This experimental reader was developed as part of a curriculum project, described in vt 004 454, which produced and tested materials with eighth and ninth graders in school systems in several states. It is intended to help disadvantaged students learn basic principles and concepts of mechanics and to stimulate interest in reading. Illustrations and text explain how the model t and model a ford operated. Topics include the carburetor, axles, driveshaft, universal joints, brakes, internal combustion engines, lubrication systems, and cooling systems. The processes and parts are illustrated by drawings. The material was adapted from publications of the ford motor company and the 1900-1918 issues of the "scientific American." other related documents are vt 004 455 through vt 004 471. (em)
