When You Go to Work. A Book for the Needle Trades.
Hillinger, Yvonne M.
Instructional materials for student use were developed by the author and a state-level committee of teachers to be used in a vocational school for the deaf, slow learner, or near illiterate. The program was tested at the State School for the Deaf. The book presents the non-technical information that the students will need to have as employees. Unit topics are: (1) The Factory, (2) A Good Worker, (3) The Job, (4) Shop Mathematics, (5) Clothing for Women, and (6) Clothing for Men. Objectives are stated for each lesson. Boldly printed vocabulary lists, cartoons, drawings, assignments, as well as forms and facsimiles for employment, interviews, warnings, checks, social security applications, and time cards are distributed liberally throughout. The workbook type format contains answering space. Examplary lesson topics are the production line, paycheck, work habits, grooming, first day on the job, time-piecework, and the yardstick. (FP)
