Optional: **Man-Made Fiber Fact Book—Internet source: www.fibersource.com
SUPPLIES: Cassette tape + See Lab Book--Be prepared for the WED/FRIDAY lab period.
NOTE: The text is written at an 11-12 grade reading level. If your reading of English vocabulary is below that level, you may find success difficult in this class. The reading lab is available to improve your reading and vocabulary--see me immediately so you can get off to a good start. Please see me to get help with testing your reading level and getting you into a lab this quarter.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: TEXTILES is a comprehensive study of natural and synthetic fibers, their properties, end uses and care as they relate to fashion ready-to-wear and interior design. This course will help you make the link between important fiber properties, fabric structure, and finishes and its performance in a specific end use.
OUTCOMES FOR INDES 110: Students successfully completing this class will be able to:
l. Understand and correctly use basic fiber property terminology for natural and man-made fibers as demonstrated on lab book writings, exams, and abstracts.
2. Demonstrate a basic understanding of the fiber chemistry and molecular arrangement as it relates to fiber properties by applying this information to textile technologies.
3. Identify unknown fibers/ or fiber blends based on completion and analysis of burning and microscopic testing.
After successful completion of Textiles, student work will:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of information about the major fibers, their properties and how that relates to selection for appropriate end uses by successfully completing exams questions and through the preparation/completing of the lab notebook.
2. Identify, locate, and extract current information on a fiber technology utilizing varied information sources on textiles, for example the Journal Abstract.
3. Identify and select fabrics for specific end uses based on the performance of their yarn structure and fabric construction and be able to correlate to appropriate performance criteria.
4. Demonstrate problem identification and solutions by the selection, and justification of appropriate finishes including dyes, perma-press, flammability, and soil release, for specific end uses; for example, in the preparation of the property chart, and test essay questions.
5. Cite guidelines/criteria of varied pieces of federal legislation as they apply to fabrics by successfully completing exam questions.
