Publisher Description:

Did you remember your goggles?

There used to be a time when pretty much every high school offered Shop class, where students learned to use a circular saw or rewire a busted lamp- all while discovering the satisfaction of being self-reliant and doing it yourself. Shop Class for Everyone now offers anyone who might have missed this vital class a crash course in these practical life skills. Packed with illustrated step by step instructions, plus relevant charts, lists, and handy graphics, here’s how to plaster a wall, build a bookcase from scratch, unclog a drain, and change a flat tire (on your car or bike). It’s all made clear in plain, nontechnical language for any level of DIYer, and it comes with a guarantee: No matter how simple the task, doing it with your own two hands provides a feeling of accomplishment that no app or device will ever give you.

Category Description for Practical Life Skills For Everyone:

You might call these books Adulting 101 for your high schoolers! Each includes a variety of topics from boiling an egg, doing laundry, mopping a floor, and hanging curtains to simple plumbing, electrical and auto repairs. It covers those things kids should know before leaving home. Instructions are clear and illustrations help the reader with unfamiliar concepts. Both of these courses could well qualify for a semester of high school credit too. The course material is designed to provide young people with a step towards independence in a concise presentation.
