A SHORT-TERM TERMINAL COURSE FOR POTENTIAL DROPOUTS.
CANGEMI, JOSEPH P.
STUDENTS IDENTIFIED AS "HARD-CORE" FUTURE DROPOUTS BY COUNSELORS, TEACHERS, AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS SHOULD BE GROUPED TOGETHER FOR A COMPREHENSIVE, SHORT-TERM COURSE. SOME OF THE REALISTIC OBJECTIVES OF A TERMINAL PROGRAM FOR POTENTIAL DROPOUTS ARE--TO PREPARE STUDENTS WHO ARE DROPPING OUT OF SCHOOL FOR IMMEDIATE EMPLOYMENT, TO FAMILIARIZE STUDENTS WITH VARIOUS MEANS AND AGENCIES THAT CAN HELP THEM OBTAIN FULL-TIME AND PART-TIME WORK, TO PREPARE STUDENTS FOR JOB INTERVIEWS, TO EXPOSE STUDENTS TO PROCEDURES NEEDED FOR OBTAINING EMPLOYMENT CREDENTIALS, TO MAKE STUDENTS AWARE OF STATE LABOR LAWS AND EQUIVALENCY TESTS, AND TO LEAVE STUDENTS WITH KNOWLEDGE OF POSSIBLE PROCEDURES FOR REENTRY INTO THE SCHOOL PROGRAM. THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF UNITS RECOMMENDED FOR INCLUSION IN A TERMINAL PROGRAM--HOW TO FIND A JOB, HOW TO APPLY FOR A JOB, THE JOB INTERVIEW, HOW TO OBTAIN WORKING PAPERS, EMPLOYEE-EMPLOYER RELATIONS, EMPLOYEE RESPONSIBILITIES, RETIREMENT PLANS, BANKING AND SAVING, HOW TO COMPLETE INCOME TAX FORMS, UNION AND NON-UNION MEMBERSHIP, APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING PROGRAMS, AND THE ARMED FORCES.
