The Manual Transmission!

I just recently took driver's ed, but this was never covered. I had to look in the textbook on my own time to even find out a sort of summary about this, but I have forgotten it all.

So here is the question.

How does a manual transmission car work?

Don't give me smart answers like "well you turn the key and it goes on..." What I mean is, how and when do you shift gears? What are the functions of the different gears? How do you know when it's time to shift gears? If it matters, this is for a 1987 Honda Civic hatchback coupe. If someone can explain this to me in lay(wo)man's terms, well, that would be super as Reverend Lovejoy would always say.
