    Jointer Safety

    Jointer Safety

    Overview

    The jointer is an important tool/piece of equipment used in woodworking. In this set of lessons, students will identify the parts of a jointer, describe the safety hazards associated with the jointer, and demonstrate the steps to operating the circular saw. This lesson will consist of a PowerPoint lecture, notes, video, teacher demonstration, student demonstration, safety quiz, and student performance assessment.

    Jointer Safety

    Materials
    “1 – Jointer Powerpoint”
    “2 - Jointer Quiz and Demo”
    “3 - Jointer Quiz and Demo KEY”
    1 - Jointer for teacher and student demonstrations
    1 - Piece of Scrap Wood for teacher and student demonstrations
    1 - Clamp teacher and student demonstrations
    1 - Pair of safety glasses for each student


    Interest Approach
    What tool or machine can we use square up the rough cut oak in the shop? Discuss with your table. Be prepared to justify your reason. Discuss the answers from the bellwork question. Weigh the positives and negatives of each answer. Eventually lead into jointers.

    Content/Procedure/Activity
    Day 1
    1.    Use the “1-Jointer Powerpoint” to guide you through the jointer parts, safety, and use. The slides should directly lead with what should be said. It would also be helpful to have the jointer and the manual available during this time. Students should write the steps on a sheet of notebook paper or in their shop safety booklet (if you utilize something like this). Ask students the embedded review questions. 
    2.    The teacher should demonstrate using the jointer while the students read the steps from their notes. 
    3.    The students should practice demonstrating the jointer without plugging it in. One partner should check the steps while the other demonstrates. During this time, I will circle amongst the groups to double check for proper use and safety.
    4.    With 5-10 minutes remaining in class, students should clean up. Then review the safety quiz questions for the Jointer Safety Quiz.
    Day 2
    1.    Remind students that their Jointer Safety Quiz is today. Give them 5-10 minutes to study alone, study with a partner or ask questions. 
    2.    Ask students if there are any final questions before the quiz. 
    3.    Review quiz/test expectations - spread out, eyes on your own paper, write legibly, etc. 
    4.    Review key quiz instructions - write instructions on quiz, clarify any commonly missed questions or issues with the safety map, etc. 
    5.    Give instructions for what to do when finished (practice for demonstration portion - not plugged in)
    6.    Safety Quiz  - Pass out the quiz. Circle the room and assist when needed.

    7.    Once students are finished with their quiz, they will prepare for the demonstration portion. Review the steps with students. Ask if there are any questions. 
    8.    One by one students should demonstrate use of the jointer to the instructor. The instructor should utilize the checklist of steps on the back of the jointer safety quiz. 
    9.    While waiting their turn, other students should practice the steps with a partner (without plugging in) or watch the student demonstrations.

    Closure/Check for Understanding
    1.    If not all students completed the demonstration, this will need to continue during the next class period. Review what proper clean up looks like. Have students clean up.
