LAB MANUAL INSTRUCTOR’S GUIDE
ORGANIZATION
This instructor’s guide to the lab manual provides the
following information when appropriate to the exercise:
• Exercise description.
Restatement of the exercise activity presented
in the lab manual.
Additional instructional techniques.
When alternative teaching methods are
appropriate to support the exercise, they
are identified for the instructor.
topics.
• Evaluation recommendations.
Suggested criteria to be used when evaluating
student performance is identified.
• Grading rubric.
For projects with scaled traits, a grading
rubric is provided for evaluation of student
performance. This rubric can also be an
the exercises presented in the lab manual.
While actual projects are highly recommended,
control of the parameters used for teaching
and evaluation will change when the task
is converted from the controlled exercise
environment.
LAB PREPARATION
Begin preparation for labs well in advance of the actual
lab time. Materials, tools, and students must be coor-
dinated to make effective use of lab time. Consider
work planned, and be prepared to adapt the lab if cir-
cumstances change.
LAB AREA DEVELOPMENT
To successfully carry out controlled, practical exercises
it is necessary for the instructor to provide construction

include the following:
Increase the planning time to allow for
additional preparation activities.
Prepare a design to work from that includes
the exercise criteria. This design may expand
the criteria or combine multiple exercises to
create a complete project. Incorporate design

are not prominently located.
Obtain necessary permits before construction.
Rent equipment necessary for implementing the
project.
Complete Outdoor Lab Development
Expanded opportunities for practice can be obtained if
resources permit the development of a complete lab-
oratory area for landscape construction. With proper
support, many of the facilities identified here can be
constructed as landscape construction exercises. This
lab should include all or part of the following spaces and
facilities:
A 20 foot × 20 foot lumber and material storage
area (Figure 1)
Indoor Lab Development
Development of an indoor construction lab can mitigate
the effects of inclement weather upon class lab time. While
the preference for preparing students for real-world activi-
ties suggests outdoor work experience, class schedules
of the facility permits many of the construction activities.
SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE
Before beginning constructions activities, review the
Safety in the Workplace chapter of the Landscape Con-
struction textbook.
EVALUATION AND ASSESSMENT TOOLS
Recommended grading criteria or primary trait grading
scales are provided with each exercise. Each of these
evaluation tools has the potential to be used as a class-
room assessment instrument if used to provide feedback
